Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Auchmera is a genus of snout moths. It was described by Hampson, in 1930, and contains the species A. falsalis. It is found in India.The Pyralidae or snout moths are a family of Lepidoptera in the ditrysian superfamily Pyraloidea. In many (particularly older) classifications, the grass moths (Crambidae) are included in the Pyralidae as a subfamily, making the combined group one of the largest families in the Lepidoptera. The latest review by Munroe & Solis, in Kristensen (1999) retains the Crambidae as a full family of pyraloidea.Most of these small moths are inconspicuous and of no particular significance to humans. Some are more notable, however. Perhaps the most familiar are waxworms, which are the caterpillar larvae of the Greater (Galleria mellonella) and Lesser (Achroia grisella) wax moths (subfamily Galleriinae).show more
