Abstract: The Lacewing Digital Library’s World Neuropterida Faunas module suite provides a venue for the publication of interactively generated faunas of varied geographic extent and depth. Each country fauna module will be authored by one or more regional experts on that fauna, and a world-by-country module will contain faunal data at the global level, including data for countries not represented by separate country modules. A list of the faunas modules that have been publically released to date, and those that are currently in development, is given in the table below. 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.
