The identities of the Microlepidoptera described by Linnaeus and Clerck have been critically reviewed. Evidence used to reassess usage of Linnaeus and Clerck names comes in part from the surviving material of these two authors, from their publications and those of subsequent revisers, and from contemporary collections. Results are presented in the form of an alphabetic catalogue of the species-group names used by Linnaeus and Clerck for Microlepidoptera, with a complete listing of material in the Linnaeus and Clerck collections. Lectotypes are designated for most of the species and new synonymies are proposed.
