Borneo is a geographical entity, a very large island shared between several nations. Most of the collecting and curating effort on Bornean pyraloids in recent decades has been done in Sabah, particularly on and around Mount Kinabalu. It is hoped this Guide will stimulate study in other parts of the island. This is Part 1 of three planned guides. The main group in this part is the family Pyralidae, which together with the Crambidae forms the superfamily Pyraloidea. Members of the Pyralidae are often referred to as ‘pyralids’, and likewise ‘crambids’ for the Crambidae. The term ‘pyraloid’ used often here refers to both pyralids and crambids ie. all the members of the superfamily Pyraloidea.
Part 2 will cover the subfamilies Midilinae; Schoenobiinae; Acentropinae; Crambinae; Scopariinae; Glaphyriinae; Evergestinae; Noordinae and Odontiinae.
Part 3 will cover the Spilomelinae; Wurthiinae; Pyraustinae; Cybalomiinae and Heliothelinae.
