Lepidoptera - some pictures

The outline of this page is roughly the systematics of lepidoptera. The division goes
to varying depths at different groups. There is no profound reason for that besides the obvious:
If I have a page of a subgroup, I like to show the other groups at the same level.

Mainly the link at the name is for all the species found in Europe. For most groups
there is also a possibility to see only the species found in Finland. That link is the
Finnish flag. There are also older pages which have only the Finnish species. Those will
be eventually updated to cover European species.

There is no system to which groups have a page and which do not. I just like some more
than others. This page also contains links to the my bigger projects: Butterflies and Pterophoridae.
