Noctuoidea - geographical distribution

have started to add geographical distribution info from literature into checklists and species atlases. The sources for that are a bit hidden, that's why I repeat it all here (as of January 14, 2022)

//////////////////////////////
work in progress: I am trying to cover palaearctic Noctuidae (Noctuoidea). Sources will be listed here, but they are the same for all Noctuidae:
(1) for Russian Federation and Crimea: Catalogue of the Lepidoptera of Russia 2019 https://www.researchgate.net/publication/338865579_Catalogue_of_the_Lepidoptera_of_Russia
Remarks: (a) Krasnoyarsk krai, most observations are from far South, (b) Sakha-Yakutia, most observations are from South

(3) for Europe (and some Near East, North Africa and Central Asia) www.lepiforum.de . As the website was in June 2021. Combining this with information from The Lepidoptera of Europe 1996 by Karsholt & Razowski. Remarks: (a) "Yugoslavia"; if the rest of the distribution is in W, N or Central Europe, Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia is taken. If it's E or SE Europe, nothing is selected unless there is specific evidence of location.

Contains species described up to Hampson only, ca 1912; there is no regional distribution information and very few references]

...not finished yet! Far more to do! Let me know if you come across country checklists or local checklists which could be included. Also let me know if you happen to see errors, I will correct them...

(I have skipped North America and Australia on purpose, because there are enough experts on iNat which could do it)
