Ken you might want to edit that to http://www.mothsireland.com/newsletter.htm or even just to
http://www.mothsireland.com

It is planned to upload about 480 provisional distribution maps by end of April.
Fair point, Angus! But I thought the article on the separation of red twin-spot carpet and dark-barred tsc was very helpful.
You've made very rapid progress in Irish recording... you must have had some long sessions on the computer! I'm lucky, I just have to send in my records on a spreadsheet and someone else does all the work.

Yes, including tonight!

480 species maps uploaded. Also regional flight charts for a quater of them. Some of those flight charts are very telling.........well for us here.

These maps are very provisional, but at least a good idea of range can be assessed for vast majority.

I think I'd have a nervous breakdown if I had a catch like that! And I imagine that field guides don't exist for that part of the world. There may well be species that are new to science.

Hi, David,
There seems to be an uncanny similarity between your sites and Richard's. Are you Warwks mothers all using the same templates?
(Not that there's anything wrong with that ;) )

If some of those turned up in trap I don't know whether I'd laugh or run away! Check out #5 on http://www.thaibugs.com/Pik of moths/showthem.htm for example.

Agreed! Looks like the sort of thing a child would design in art class.
I wonder why the clear-wings on the same page are called hand-maidens.

Great link on the Thai bugs - thanks. Was able to successfully ID some butterflies on it.

Something like that sorely lacking for East and Central Africa.

Cheers
Marcell
