Re: More Catalogues 4

I have an earlier catalogue from that company, but it only lists the species that were available. No pictures. The owner of the company, Terry Thomas, was busted for importing illegal species. The company was sold to the Lewallen brothers (Rod & Greg), who later sold it to Bioquip.

Naphthalene is still available in the USA, but probably not for long.

I wonder if the Queen or other members of the royal family were interested in butterflies.

Old Insect Catalogues

I noticed a recent post that showed an old butterfly catalogue. I'd like to see more of them, so show us yours. Here are some of mine. I'll show more of them later.

Re: Signing out

Once you have begun insect collecting, you can never give it up. I know someone whose entire collection of over 50 years was lost in a fire. He stopped collecting for a short while but is now back out in the field and enjoying every minute of it. Every specimen he collects reminds him of when he fir...

Re: Alaus oculatus

I don't see as many of them as I did when they had MV lights. Back then it wasn't unusual to find a dozen of them at one location.

Alaus oculatus

These are fairly common in the eastern USA, with closely related species in the west. I usually find them either flying between trees or at lights. Up to 45mm in length.

Re: Buckeye (Junonia coenia)

Although common, it's one of my favorites. I can't resist capturing them. Is that styrofoam the specimens are pinned to?

Gone With The Wind

During the past decade, mercury vapor lights have been replaced by LED lights on most outdoor buildings & gas stations. The MV days are most likely gone forever. About 70% of the specimens in my collection are the result of collecting at gas stations & other lighted buildings when they had M...

Re: Pseudacraea

Thanks for the link, livingplanet3. Great info. I wouldn't have guessed that Heliconiinae were related to Limenitidinae, but the genetic studies make it obvious.
