Liste des Lépidoptères du Québec et du Labrador has been published as Fabreries’ Supplement no. 7, authored by Louis Handfield, with the collaboration of Jean-François Landry, Bernard Landry and J. Donald Lafontaine. This checklist records 2576 species representing 954 genera, 64 families and 29 superfamilies; an additional 278 species found in adjacent territories and whose occurrence in Québec is possible are also mentioned. This is the first comprehensive list of Lepidoptera of Québec since 1912. No new nomenclatural changes are proposed. However, the nomenclature has been thoroughly updated; many names, reflecting either recently introduced species or recent nomenclatural changes published in Europe, appear for the first time in North American literature. The list is accompanied by synoptic tables, 259 nomenclatural and faunistic notes, an annotated list of 52 species erroneously recorded from Québec, references to taxonomic works useful for species identification, comments on the adopted classification of higher taxa, an exhaustive list of references consulted, and a complete index of all taxonomic names. An English abstract is provided, but the rest of the text is in French.Available from: Association des entomologistes amateurs du Québec a/s Insectarium de Montréal 4581, rue Sherbrooke Est Montréal, Québec H1X 2B2 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: (514) 652-6087 Web site: WWW.AEAQ.QC.CA
