The classification of thespecies follows the regularity of their occurence. A table shows the tyrphophil and tyrphobiont Lepidoptera onMt. Brocken. The author discusses the occurence of Sterrhopteryx standfussi, Elachista albidella, E. kilmunella,Clepsis rogana, Trichiura crataegi, Cosmotriche lobulina, Clossiana aquilionaris, Erebia epiphron,Elophos dilucidaria, E. vittaria, Eulithis testata, Carsia sororiata imbutata, Acronicta menyanthidis,A.auricoma, Plusia putnami gracilis, Syngrapha interrogationis, Apamea rubrirena, A. remissa, Pseudoipsprasinana, Anarta cordigera and Xestia speciosa more precisely.
