From Library Journal:

An entomologist (Tuskes), collector (James P. Tuttle), and zoologist (Michael M. Collins), all having a common interest in wild silk moths (family Saturniidae) have combined their expertise to write this new reference on saturniid moths. There are about 1200 species worldwide; this work covers the approximately 70 species found in North America north of Mexico, and also several subspecies. Included are the familiar luna and cecropia moths and other large and showy species sought by collectors. Each species entry provides some general comments and discusses distribution, adult description and biology, immature stages of the moth, and rearing. The species accounts are preceded by several chapters on saturniid life history, parasites, populations, collecting, rearing, and silk moths and human culture. This illustrated and clearly written reference will appeal to lepidopterists, naturalists, students, and serious amateur collectors who have a basic knowledge of biology. Recommended for academic and research libraries.
