A few years ago Rob de Vos (Zoological museum of Amsterdam) started a survey
of the Aganainae of Southeast Asia.
When the Aganainae were separated from the Arctiidae he focused entirely
on the taxonomy of the remaining Arctiidae.

Three years ago I took over the all the data concerning the Aganainae, collected by Rob de Vos.

I hope to complete his job in a couple of years.
The information on this site is based on reading and visits to the entomological departments
of several museums in the Netherlands, Great Britain and Germany.

I started with the investigation of the Agnainae from South East Asia and the
Indo-Australian tropics. In 2008 I included the Aganainae from Africa.
