NOTICE: We are currently updating the catalogue with all taxonomic changes published from 2011 through the middle to end of 2013. This will be a major update (Ver. 3.0) that will include more than 500 new species and an additional 6-700 updated records. We expect this update to be released early summer, 2014.


Tortricid.net is pleased to offer the complete World Catalogue of the Tortricidae (T@RTS)! This is a complete list of all world species, utilitzing the World Catalogue published in 2005 as the foundation for the database. More than 14,500 records are currently present representing approximately 10,300 individual species (see the Catalogue Stats for current numbers). The database is completely searchable and contains photos of over 1,200 type specimens.

T@RTS will be updated regularly both with corrections from the original world catalogue and with additions since its publication. As such, these pages will serve as the most up to date information on current tortricid nomenclature. If you find any errors in the data presented here or have any questions/comments, please use the contact form to send the authors an email.

We are indebted to all of the original authors of the World Catalogue (J. W. Brown, J. Baixeras, R. Brown, M. Horak, F. Komai, E. Metzler, J. Razowski, and K. Tuck) for providing the basis for this project.
