Re: bucket light trap

Anyone prefer to use liquid ammonia versus ethyl acetate as killing agent in BL trap? Or why not? I appreciate the wick idea - I will have to try that. I have generally used a small jar covered by a piece of screening to contain my killing agent (usually liquid ammonia household cleaner)

Re: Large Tolype (Tolype velleda)

Well said. This really speaks to the value of collecting as its often not until you spread and mount these smaller ones that you really appreciate them fully.

All my specimens of this species came from Chuck Ianni from Ohio U.S.A. He sadly passed away at the end of last year.
Chuck Ianni was the best. Really sad that he is not with us any longer.
