A group all about the moths of New Brunswick, and also the Maritimes. The variety of these night-flying (and sometimes day-flying) creatures is astounding, so post your images here and we'll get something going.

Thanks for the link Tony. The images sure pale in comparison to yours. I ran across a video, and got all excited. It turned out they were dissecting a caterpillar. That was a disappointment!
Also happy there isn't an exam lol
Ha, ha Tony some of those [Latin/scientific] terms are already in our vocabulary!!! Glad here will be no 'exam' though!
There is an outline of how to prepare moth genitalia with some (poor, blurry) photos naming the parts. It may be useful - certainly not worth remembering the names; they will not be on the end of the year exam (for Nancy & Joanne).
here some Agonopterix and a nice one the last two 1458 Mompha unifasciella & 5466 Vaxi critica the other 889 Agonopterix argillacea,916 Semioscopis aurella,922 Depressaria pastinacella,867 Agonopterix pulvipennella
I will redo photo if needed but some not in super shape
Chris: i had to leave them as they are not mine; work paid for by the Federal Government; I doubt that anyone can legally 'take them'.
By the way, did you guys know that there is a page at MPG called Nelson Poirier's Moths of New Brunswick? Not very extensive, but a start, anyway. HERE.
They're probably still there, Tony. I was there last summer, and there were many boxes of specimens just lying around. Jon Sweeney or Reggie might know. Maybe he will give them to you.
Where are they now, Tony? Surely some were kept. The NB Museum?
