All species are illustrated on 40 plates in both sexes with a total number of 2109 specimens.
This first Volume in the series has distribution maps of each species on which non-palaearctic distribution is also shown and genitalia photos of the male and female are provided, together more than 2200 illustrations. The book contains descriptions of 59 new notodontid taxa, reports 44 new synonymies and gives 17 changes of status. The book also has chapters on Classification, Biogeography and biographical notes on selected Entomologists.
