an example from <i>Caryocolum</i>, with description of a new species (Lepidoptera, Gelechiidae)
In the period 1992-2001 Neuroptera were collected in a light trap located at the roof of the Zoological Museum of Copenhagen 17,5 m above the ground. A total of 4878 specimens were collected belonging to 27 species (Tabel 1). Most interesting were the findings of the two species Parasemidalis fuscipennis (Reuter, 1894) and Sympherobius pygmaeus (Rambur, 1842). Only very few specimens were known from Denmark until know. In 2012 Neuroptera were also collected at the roof of the Zoological Museum of Copenhagen (Tabel 2). The Neuroptera caught in the light trap represents 41%of the known Danish species of this insect group. The number of Neuroptera species is compared with those of other insect groups collected in the same light trap. The efficiency of automatic light traps for collecting of insect is discussed.
