I will return next Tuesday! Expect very few new posts until then.
Hello everyone! You may have seen my posts about my research project, well, here it is again! I am 10% done with my fundraiser, I only have a few weeks left! If you can, please donate a dollar to some AWESOME MOTH RESEARCH!
The link to my research megapost can be found here
This research is super important because I am updating a very old list and working in areas with some state-listed species, my hope is to make recommendations to the state as well as the National Seashore to protect some habitat where these moths can be found.
Even if you can’t donate please share and reblog this post!
If you donate $10 to my project, I will be mailing you a specimen of a butterfly/moth I have bred or found (all humanely obtained, not just indiscriminately collected), for each additional amount you can have more specimens. This is my way of saying thank you, and trying to spread the insect love! Just mention in the comments your tumblr username :D
Here are some moths from this year!
(Catocala herodias - State Listed in MA)
(Cicinnus melsheimeri - State Listed in MA)\
