Definition of noctuid in English:
A moth of a large family (Noctuidae) whose members typically have dull forewings and pale or colourful hindwings. Also called owlet.
- There aren't very large numbers of macro moths certainly nowhere near the diversity we see in New England, a few noctuids, some small pyralids, and a handful of geometrids.
- Further, extending our study, we also tested the conservation of a selected number of loci in different lepidopteran insects, including B. mandarina, the nearest wild relative to silkworm, a group of saturniids, and a noctuid.
- Induction deterred herbivory by noctuids and aphids, and increased the probability of plant survival.
