This book is the second in a series that covers more than 1,000 species of Macro Lepidoptera of Israel, with complete and up-to-date information about their taxonomy, distribution, habitat preferences, seasonal activity and host plant interactions. This series is the first of its kind within the entire Near East that aspires to fill in a significant gap in our knowledge about the moths and butterflies of this poorly studied region.

Volume 2 summarizes information pertaining to 420 noctuid moth species currently recorded in Israel, illustrated with 38 life-sized color plates. In addition, maps of the distribution of each species throughout Israel are included. This book is complementary to the richly illustrated first volume that deals with 128 erebid species and contains 36 color plates representing the wide range of major habitat types in Israel.

As well as being an important tool for butterfly and moth specialists, this book is also a good companion for nature conservationists, biogeographers, collectors and nature lovers. The Israeli Lepidoptera series aims to serve as the definitive guide for anyone interested in the nature of Israel, as well as of the Near East in general.
