    Under this heading are listed publications on Lepidoptera from all scientific periodi- cals available to our cooperating abstractors. It is intended that every paper and book related to Lepidoptera and published in any part of the world after 1946 will be included. Abstracts give all flew species, subspecies, genera, and higher cate- gories, with type localities and generotypes, but varieties, aberrations, etc. are omi- ted. Papers from The Lepidopterists' Nell's are listed but not abstracted. Initials of cooperating abstractots are as follows: [P.Bl - P. F. BELLINGER; [A.D.] - A. DIAKONOFF; [W.H.] - WALTER HACKMAN; [N.O.J - NICHOLAS OBRAZTSOV; [C.R.] - C. L. REMINGTON; [J.T.] -]. W. TILDEN; [P.V.] - PIERRE E. L. VIETTE.
