The Lacewing Digital Library’s World Neuropterida Faunas project provides a venue for the publication of interactively generated faunas of varied geographic extent and depth. Individual country faunas, authored by one or more regional experts, and will provide data to at least to the level of state or province for a single country. A world fauna will contain country-level faunal data for all of the countries of the world, with a special focus on data for countries not represented by separate country faunas. A list of the faunas that have been publically released to date is given in the table below, together with other faunas that are currently in development. If you would like to contribute to the World Neuropterida Faunas project—by collaborating on an existing module, or by developing a new country module—please contact the editor or one of the lead authors shown below.
