We have just turned over to a new year, so that means it’s time to compile the past year’s updates and upload a new version of the Plainsboro moths checklist. This is the fourth (!) edition and it is still likely a very partial listing of what’s out there. One of the more exciting additions to the list was the Common Spragueia (Spragueia leo) that illustrates this post. It was waiting for me after I got home from a moth night at Batsto in August.
The grand total of species now stands at 344. There are also some additional month records for previously recorded species.
The list can be found here. Happy mothing in 2016!
