Research theme:

„Taxonomic inventory of ecologically specialized, plant-mining Nepticulidae (Lepidoptera: Nepticuloidea), with updated ecological and morphological characteristics of the family“

Review of the taxonomic inventory of plant-mining Nepticulidae (Lepidoptera: Nepticuloidea), morphological and ecological analysis of the family, summary of new data, and elucidation of new trends.

Tasks:

1) to perform an analysis of the taxonomic inventory of Nepticulidae based on the previously published data;

2) to supplement the family characteristics with new data on various morphological features (adaptations) based on examination of new Nepticulidae material and extensive morphometric analysis;

3) to perform an analysis of the trophic relationships of ecologically specialized, plant-mining Nepticulidae based on discovery of new host plants and previously published data;

4) to link morphometric and ecological data with phylogenetic position of various taxa of Nepticulidae and their trophic preferences.
