From "Welcome Page":

"GlobIZ is an online platform for specialists working on Pyraloidea (snout moths), one of the most species rich groups of Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths). Information edited in GlobIZ is freely provided at this website via the search options.

The abbreviation GlobIZ is based on the German title Globales Informationssystem Zünslerfalter, which could be translated as Global Information System on Pyraloidea. The title goes back to the originally in Germany initiated and funded project (see acknowledgments).
