Abstract:

"The authors have collaborated to produce this taxonomic revision and compilation on the splendid moths and caterpillars of the genus Samia, of which 19 species are now known to science. All species are shown in full color. For centuries, colorful and traditional textiles have been woven from their silk on handlooms in India, Bhutan, and China, but with improved technology and globalization, this form of wild silk increasingly attains a higher rank in the world market." --Cover.
