This work details the progress with DNA barcoding of the Noctuoidea of North America. It discusses the effectiveness of barcoding and provides a list of species for which barcoding does not distinguish species.

Available at PLOS ONE here.

For a spreadsheet of species which share barcodes with at least one other species, see S8 Table under "Supporting information" here (scroll down a bit past half way).

Abstract: This study reports the assembly of a DNA barcode reference library for species in the lepidopteran superfamily Noctuoidea from Canada and the USA.
