Figure 1: Schematic representation of phylogeny of Lepidoptera and haploid chromosome numbers of species referred to in the text. The phylogeny is based on the studies of Regier et al. [18]. Neither Bombycoidea nor Noctuidae are monophyletic, but form a clade clearly distinguishable from Pyraloidea and butterflies including Papilionoidea [18].
