Species Checklists
The nomenclatural ground of the campaign is based on an unpublished checklist assembled for the purpose of the campaign. This checklist can be downloaded from the link above.

It was assembled by the campaign coordinator from major treatments and revisions of sections of the family as well as a number of isolated recent publications. It is a continuously evolving document, benefiting of updates and input from the community of experts involved in the campaign. We propose to cite this list of names as "Rougerie, R. and Collective of iBOL Saturniidae expert taxonomists [updated 2009]: Online list of valid and available names of the Saturniidae of the World [http://www.lepbarcoding.org/saturnidae/species_checklists.php]". This checklist is the intellectual property of its authors/contributors and should not be posted, published or used for another purpose without their formal agreement.

The Saturniidae checklist is a dynamic document which will be, in the framework of the ongoing iBOL project, further developed with the input of the community of expert taxonomists involved in the campaign. The primary goal of this checklist is to act as a nomenclatural “gate keeper”, to avoid conflicting classifications and typos among the taxon names entered in BOLD. As a document curated by expert taxonomists, it aims at integrating authoritative knowledge, although it should not be considered as authoritative by itself. As a working document, it is consensual at best, with conflicts resolved in the best possible way (e.g. most recent/relevant publication, majority rule, preference of accurate revisions over short notes).

If you detect errors or overlooked updates in taxonomic status, please contact the campaign coordinator. Your comments will be directed to the appropriate taxonomic specialist for consideration.
