Abstract
Adult specimens of Geometridae from the Dale H. Habeck Lepidoptera collection were databased in Excel 97 for inclusion in the Florida Museum of Natural History collection databases. A synopsis of data from 58 reared Florida species is presented. Larval hosts are listed from 97 genera representing 45 angiosperm plant families. First known hosts for 11 Geometridae species and previously unknown hosts for 31 species are reported. Records of special interest are discussed including suspected and confirmed cases of lichenivory as well as herbivory of an invasive tree species.
