The  object  of  the  present  Catalogue  is  to  give  a complete 
list  of  all  the  genera  and  species  of  Crambites  and  Tortricites 
known  to  exist  in  the  different  collections.  The  letters  a , b , c, 
&c.,  after  the  species,  denote  the  specimens  now  contained 
in  the  British  Museum,  followed  by  the  habitat  and  the  mode 
in  which  each  of  them  was  obtained,  and  the  absence  of 
these  letters  indicates  the  species  which  are  desiderata,  and 
therefore  desirable  to  be  procured  for  the  collection.

Note . — Some  of  the  exotic  genera  that  are  here  included  in  this 
and  in  the  following  families  hardly  agree  with  the  characters  which 
will  combine  the  European  genera  in  their  respective  families.  The 
classification  of  these  tribes  has  been  founded  on  European  species, 
and  will  probably  soon  be  much  altered  by  the  formation  of  new 
families  of  exotic  genera.

PREFAC E . 


The  object  of  the  present  Catalogue  is  to  give  a complete 
list  of  all  the  genera  and  species  of  Crambites,  Tortricites  and 
Tineites  known  to  exist  in  the  different  collections.  The 
letters  a , b , c , &c.,  after  the  species,  denote  the  specimens  now 
contained  in  the  British  Museum,  followed  by  the  habitat  and 
the  mode  in  which  each  of  them  was  obtained,  and  the  absence 
of  these  letters  indicates  the  species  which  are  desiderata, 
and  therefore  desirable  to  be  procured  for  the  collection.
