Marianne Horak is curator of Lepidoptera at the Australian National Insect Collection at CSIRO Entomology, Canberra, with taxonomy, biology and phylogeny of tortricid and phycitine moths her research focus. She is one of the leading experts on tortricid moths, and her involvement with the group started with her PhD work at the ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Studies on the Papuan and Indonesian fauna provided the necessary basis to revise the Australian olethreutine fauna.
This book is undoubtedly one of the most significant and original
contributions to tortricid systematics to appear in the last few
decades, and its impact likely will be felt by generations of
tortricid systematics... Horak is to be congratulated for her
tenacity in finishing this overwhelming project and creating a
masterpiece in the process.-- "Newsletter of the Troop of Reputed
Without any doubt, this book will have a crucial impact on our understanding of olethreutine evolution worldwide. It can be recommended to anybody interested in the systematics, ecology, applied entomology, or evolutionary biology of Olethreutinae.--Nuss "Nota Lepidopterologica"
