Abstract: The primary and selected secondary literature pertaining to the insect superorder Neuropterida (orders Neuroptera, Megaloptera, Raphidioptera and Glosselytrodea) are catalogued. Strong emphasis is placed on documenting the peer-reviewed scientific literature relevant to the group; informal, popular, secondary and manuscript print sources are documented where considered noteworthy, as are selected digital- and web-native works. Bibliography coverage is worldwide and includes all aspects of neuropterology. Coverage is particularly complete in the subject areas of systematics, taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography, morphology, paleontology, biology and faunistics. Extensive, but less complete, coverage is present for other subject areas, such as physiology, parasites, ecology and biological control. Each work included in the bibliography is represented by a separate bibliographic record. Individual records can be located, or lists of related records generated, by interactively searching on a suite of standardized data fields. Bibliographic records provide standardized data for citing and locating works, and, where available and permissible, contain links to one or more digital representations of those works. Many records contain detailed annotation data concerning publication errata, neuropterid content, date of publication, cited taxa, included illustrations and/or other aspects of particular works. This version of the bibliography contains bibliographic records for 15,100+ works and links to digital representations of 8700+ works. 126,000+ annotations document taxa cited and figures included in 3900+ works.
