Mini adventure

I’m about to embark on a collecting trip with my advisor and a few members of the lab – we’re going to explore some rare habitat on Long Island. Apparently there’s a very rare Acronicta there… we’ll see if I can find it!

We’re going to be using beating sheets to look for caterpillars, and blacklighting at night for moths. Should be a blast.

Oh! And last night I got another A. lobeliae at my blacklight. Yay!
