About Us

The Sphingidae global campaign aims at assembling a complete reference library for all hawkmoths on the planet, associating DNA barcodes and reliable taxonomic information for a thorough test of the efficiency of DNA barcodes for species identification. The community of expert taxonomists working on these moths is deeply involved in this project and many colleagues have started to use DNA barcodes in an integrative taxonomic approach combined with morphological study to address the yet undescribed part of the diversity of these emblematic insects.
If you have any question about this project, please contact Rodolphe Rougerie, Ian J. Kitching or Jean Haxaire.
