An invaluable site for synonyms, links to original descriptions, literature, and other information. Covers the entire world, but tends to have more complete information for European and North American species. A great place to begin literature searches.
"The Lepidopterists' Society Season Summary [sometimes: LepSoc-SS] is an annual compilation of Lepidoptera records from Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Each year our members submit information regarding range extensions, host plant associations, population dynamics, etc. Automated in 1995, the database contains all records since that time plus Saturniidae and Sphingidae records since 1971."
