The Lepidoptera fauna of the Sopron Mountaiuns is well known; more than 800 species was published. The oak forests have high importance in the region, because they support a high species richness of Lepidoptera. Macromoths which occur in sessile oak-hornbeam forests in the study area are classified in five larger faunal types. The most important are the Trans-Palearctic, West-Palearctic and “Siberian” species from which the Euro-Siberian, Holomediterranean and Boreo-Continental faunal types compose the basic fauna. Moreover, several further faunal elements are known from the Sopron Mountains, such as South Continental and Extra-Palearctic species, furthermore other Mediterranean and Boreal components.
