INTRODUCTION • In this chapter, the role of taxonomy for the conservation of biodiversity is discussed in brief and also pointed out that insect diversity plays a greater role in the overall understanding of biodiversity. • Lepidoptera is the third largest order of class Insecta and family Geometridae is the second largest group of moths in this order in terms of species richness and numerical strength. • The diagnostic features of family Geometridae are highlighted. Besides this, the classification of this family has also been discussed. The classification given by Scoble (1999) has been followed in the present study. • Family Geometridae is of immense economic significance.
