Investigations on the Fauna of Pyraloidea and Geometridae (Lepidoptera) of Nemrut Caldera Natural Monument

Kesran AKIN [1] , Erdem SEVEN [2]


This study is conducted between May and October 2017 and 2018, during the day and night by field studies on the foothills of Nemrut Caldera and Mount Nemrut by targeting the detection of Pyraloidea and Geometridae moth species. As a result of the field studies, 93 taxa belonging to Pyraloidea and 52 species of Geometridae are determined. Of these taxa, 80 species belonging to the Pyraloidea and, 40 species belonging to the Geometridae have been identified for the first time in Nemrut Caldera. With these records, the number of Pyraloidea species in Nemrut Caldera increased to 94 and the number of Geometridae species increased to 58. And, of these taxa, 20 species of Pyraloidea, and 21 of Geometridae are new records for the Bitlis province. The number of pyraloid species in the Bitlis province has risen to 238 and also the number of geometrid species to 137.
