Abstract: The primary and selected secondary literature pertaining to the insect superorder Neuropterida (orders Neuroptera, Megaloptera, Raphidioptera and Glosselytrodea) are catalogued and annotated. 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 coverage is also provided for other subject areas, such as physiology, parasites, ecology, and economic neuropterology. Each of the approximately 17,200 works currently included in the Bibliography is represented by a separate bibliographic record. Bibliographic records provide standardized data for documenting, citing, and locating works and, where available and permissible, provide links to one or more digital representations of those works. Many bibliographic records also contain detailed annotation data that are relevant to specific works. Bibliographic record annotations address a wide variety of topics, including: the neuropterid content of individual works, publication errata, dates of publication, author data, and variant publication states. In addition to Bibliographic record annotations, more than 200,000 index annotations provide page-level access to several classes of information (e.g., figures, identification keys, and new genus- and species-group taxa) that are contained in publications viewable via the Lacewing Digital Library File Viewer.
