Ferris, C.D., 2017. Lepidoptera of North America 14. Geometroidea: Geometridae: Larentiinae: Eupitheciini (Part). Contributions of the C.P. Gillette Museum of Arthropod Diversity Colorado State University, p.1-103 (PDF)

Abstract
A review of primarily western North American species in the Geometridae: Larentiinae: Eupitheciini (Eupithecia, Nasusina, and Prorella) is presented. A series of species plates arranged in phylogenetic order follows a limited discussion of this group. Each plate illustrates both sexes (when known) of the adult moths and their associated genitalia. Minimalaccompanying text provides the following information: literature citation for the original description; type locality; location of the type; biology when known with flight period; geographic distribution; and key diagnostic characters. A comprehensive annotated bibliography is included.

Updated Info and Link
The work currently includes 191 plates with 226 total pages and now covers all of North America. The new link is https://hdl.handle.net/10217/186354.

"The coverage now lacks one Prorella sp., one Nasusina sp., and several Eupithecia sp., some of which are apparently known only from the type specimen. Any future update will be in the form of a separate supplement rather than revising the current long e-monograph." - Cliff Ferris (9/8/2018)
