A Monograph to the New World Heliothentinae (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
By David F. Hardwick
Centre for Land and Biological Resources Research, Agriculture Canada, Ottawa, Canada, 1996
Cite: 137942 with citation markup [cite:137942]
A scholarly review of this monograph appears here. [Note: Apparently "Heliothentinae" = Heliothinae in currently accepted nomenclature (e.g. as used on BugGuide). See aforementioned review for details.]

UPDATE (Dec. 2020): Unavailable; link broken
Unfortunately, this volume seems to be currently unavailable from any online or hard copy source. The link above to a "scholarly review" is also non-functional. A pdf review of the volume by Peter J. Landolt is available here.

WorldCat option + current link to the (other) "scholarly review"
I too was (and still am) unable to find an online version of Hardwick's monograph. For those determined to study the monograph this WorldCat link lists university libraries where it's presumably available. Amazon or other 2nd hand booksellers may offer further opportunities.

The "scholarly review" I referred to earlier was written in 1998 by James K. Adams and appeared in the Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society Vol. 52(2)...below is a currently active link (to replace the now "dead" link I gave earlier):

PS: Chuck, I too grew up in southern California...a region of wonderfully diverse natural habitats (must have been even more fabulous before the 1500's (far less disturbance & no Mediterranean weeds!)...but a lot harder to access ;-)
