How to Pronounce macrolepidoptera - American English

Macrolepidoptera is a group within the insect order Lepidoptera. Traditionally used for the larger butterflies and moths as opposed to the "microlepidoptera", this group is unnatural.

The two superfamilies Geometroidea and Noctuoidea account for roughly one-quarter of all known Lepidoptera.
