Though the middle China from the West to the East, the Qinling Mountains provide a natural boundary between the Yangtze River and the Yellow River, the two major river systems in China. They stretch from Lintao, Gansu Province in the west to Lushan, Henan Province in the east, with the length of 500km from west to east and the breadth of 140-200km from north to south. The west part of the Qinling Mountains is considerably steep, with higher elevations of 2000-3000m while the east part is comparatively gentle, with lower elevation generally below 2000m. The Qinling Mountains are generally accepted as the boundary between Palaearctic and Oriental Regions, subtropical and warm temperature zones, as well as the north line of distribution of subtropical evergreen broad-leaved forests. This region is characterized by transition from one natural geographical condition to another and one geological structure unit to another. Furthermore, the Qinling Mountains as the highest mountain in the east of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, have their own unique vertical landscape spectrum. Because of the special geographic location of the Qinling Mountains Range, it is rich in species diversity and has strong regional endemism, which constantly makes it research hotspot both for taxonomy and biogeography. However the study of insect fauna in this area is fragmented and still lacks systematic monographs
The compiling style of Insect Fauna of the Qinling Mountains is mainly in accordance with Fauna Sinica, and the sequence is based on the systematic relationship of the hexapod system. The compiling of each order is according to the phylogenetic relationship and one family is taken as a unit. Below the family, the sequence of each genus is also according to the phylogenetic relationship, while below the genus, the arrangement of species is in alphabetical order. Each species is sorted according to the first letter. Each category is accompanied by identification feature and identification key, and each genus, as well as each species has scientific citation. At the end, references are attached. In order to accurately reflect the work of every specialist apart from the Editorial Board of Insect Fauna of the Qinling Mountains. the Editorial Board for each volume is also provided, and  the authors for each family immediately follow the family name. 
There are totally 12 volumes for Insect Fauna of the Qinling Mountains.

Volume IX  ( Lepidoptera II ) is edited by professor Fang Lijun, and includes exclusively butterflies.
Volume X   is edited by Professor Yang Ding, Associate Prof. Wang Mengqing and Dr. Dong Hui, and includes Diptera.
Volume XI  is edited by Professor Chen Xuexin, and includes Hymenoptera.  
There are total 4 classes, 27 orders, 334 families, 3325 genera and 7496 species of Hexapoda recorded in the 11 volumes of this series, including one new genus and 27 new species. For the new record, there are 12 genera and 34 species from China, as well as 42 genera and 260 species from Shaanxi Province. It should be noted that the contents of Microlepidoptera have been published previously by Professor Li Houhun, Nankai University, therefore, we haven't rewritten same context. Besides, due to the unavailability of suitable specialists, some insect groups unavoidably are not covered in this series, In order to make up for this defect and systematically summarize the known species of insects, as well as make convenience for the readers, the book Insect Fauna of Shaanxi Province, was jointly compiled by Prof. Tang Zhouhuai and 
Dr. Yang Meixia, which will be the twelfth volume of this series.
