This interactive CD-ROM on the preparation of genitalia of Microlepidoptera is a teaching tool that aims to facilitate the procedures of dissecting genitalia and the making of genitalia slides for relatively inexperienced users. Described are the procedures used for the economically important superfamily Tortricoidea, which have broad application to a great many groups of Microlepidoptera. For both males and females, most steps in the procedures are clarified using QuickTime movies. The equipment used is described and illustrated. In a section on the genitalia of males and females, taxonomically important structures are illustrated and labelled. A hyperlinked glossary provides definitions for technical and/or scientific terms used in the program or likely to be encountered elsewhere, and provides access to illustrations offering further clarification.
