Summary
Abstract: Genitalia often provide the most reliable characters for
identification in Microlepidoptera. Dissecting genitalia is therefore
a technique that should be mastered by all entomologists dealing with
identification of, for example, species of economic importance. The
procedure used for the economically important superfamily Tortricoidea
is described, which has broad application to a great many groups of
Microlepidoptera. Each step in the procedure is clarified using movies
and photographs. A few groups of Microlepidoptera require a different,
specialized technique that has been developed and published by Pitkin
& Sattler. References to this literature will be provided.

This CD-ROM on the preparation of genitalia of Microlepidoptera is an
interactive teaching tool that aims to facilitate the procedure of
dissecting genitalia and the making of genitalia slides for relatively
inexperienced users.
