Paukstadt, U. & Paukstadt, L. H. (2001): Liste der bei der Gattung Antheraea Hübner, 1819 ("1816") bekannten Präimaginalstadien, sowie Literaturnachweise (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae). - Galathea - Berichte des Kreises Nürnberger Entomologen eV (Nürnberg), Suppl. 10: pp. 34-46.

Summary: Presently about seventy taxa are known in the worldwide genus Antheraea Hübner, 1819 ("1816") (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae), cf. Paukstadt, Brosch & Paukstadt (2000). Despite the high number of taxa in this genus the preimaginal instars of only about 24 taxa were sufficiently described in literature. This paper listed taxa of the genus Antheraea in which the preimaginal instars are considered being well known, as well as those taxa in which the preimaginal instars are incompletely known. We hope to encourage the reader for a documentation and final publication on a rearing report and a life-history. The descriptions of the preimaginals of several taxa of the genus Antheraea from Southeast Asia are in preparation by us and will be published soon.
