Abstract

The distributions and affinities of the macrolepidopteran taxa known from south-eastern Polynesia are investigated and contrasted with various geological hypotheses for the origin of the islands. A colonialist interpretation, long distance dispersal into a westering assemblage of small islands much as seen today, appears to be most probable.
