Title: The Lepidopterists' Society PDF
Url: https://www.lepsoc.org
Publisher: Lepidopterists\' Society.
Description: Founded in 1947, the Lepidopterists' Society "embraces a wide range of interests and viewpoints concerning the study and appreciation of moths and butterflies" and includes both academic experts and dedicated amateurs in the ranks of a membership that spans 60 countries. In addition to information about the Society and membership therein, the website includes several features of interest. From the Publications section, Visitors may download in pdf format free of charge recent issues of the Society's newsletter, _News of the The Lepidopterists' Society_, and also view the Contents pages from recent issues of the organization's peer-reviewed scientific _Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society_. The News includes a special Season Summary supplement each year, containing reports of species identified by members in the various reporting regions during the preceding year, all of which the site presents in a searchable database dating to 1995. The Identification Aids section offers photos and other identifying information for the nearly 165,000 species known worldwide. Certainly one of the more intriguing features of this website is the Unknowns page, which invites users to identify photos of Lepidoptera that have stumped someone. For neophytes, a Frequently Asked Questions page contains expert answers to a list of essential questions, such as "I've heard that you can predict how cold the winter will be by looking at how thick the black bands are on a Woolly Bear caterpillar. Any truth in that?"
