|Title||Records and descriptions of Schoenoteninae from the British Museum (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae)|
|Abstract||After my 1960 synopsis of the peculiar subfamily Schoenoteninae from South Asia, I was able to bring together some additional material of these insects. In order not to postpone their identification too much, I intend to deal with diverse collections separately. The material collected by the Netherlands Stars Range Expedition, 1959, has been treated recently elsewhere (Diakonoff, 1972). The present pages deal with a part of the Schoenoteninae, picked out by me in 1972 from the vast collection of the unidentified material in the British Museum (Natural History) of London (BM). In total 21 species and one subspecies are recorded below, of which 10 species are described as new.|
I am grateful to the Trustees, to Dr. Klaus Sattler and Mr. C. Moreby, of that Museum, for the opportunity to study this material and for the permission to retain a few duplicates for the collection of the Leiden Museum (LM).
The figures were made by Mr. A. C. M. van Dijk, The Hague.
