Oraciones de ejemplo
  • There aren't very large numbers of macro moths, just a few noctuids, some small pyralids, and a handful of geometrids.
  • Identification of most caterpillars was problematic so ecological groupings were used to create five subgroups: a bract-associated morphospecies, foliage-associated taxa, geometrids, and a lichen-associated morphospecies.
  • All analysis is based on comparison of melanic and nonmelanic forms, without reference to genotype (the melanic forms in the two geometrids are dominant).

Origen

Late 19th century: from modern Latin Geometridae (plural), from the genus name Geometra, from Latin geometres (see geometer).
