Presented here, with notes, are 55 plates of illustrations: 48 are larval sketches representing 48 species in 18 families of Microlepidoptera; the remaining seven are scanning electron micrographs of larvae of three of the families, Lyonetiidae, Bucculatrigidae, and Stigmellidae. The illustrations suggest interesting affinities in some instances, are useful as identification aids, and show structural details not hitherto observed or recognized as important taxonomically.
