Perhoset Butterflies and Moths

The source of this data is from miscellanoues literature (old and new) of varying quality, and often using conflicting organizations. The result is sometimes confusing and the organization here must not be taken as any taxonomic statement or study. At this point I'm only trying to get the taxa included.

The addition of my records from over 20 years of light trapping is still at idea stage. I may end up using Java applets in this. However, some static graphs are shown from about 10 species. For example, see Amphipoea fucosa. (Not much progress on this project for ages).
