Mothing with Giants

Since September 2014 a small group of amateur entomologists have been conducting an inventory of the moth species found at REGUA - a rainforest reserve (and my foreign patch) located in the Atlantic Forest of south-east Brazil. With no guides to aid with identification and very limited references published online, building a sound species list has been a slow and difficult task.

In a short article published in the latest issue of Butterfly Conservation's Butterfly magazine (spring: 115), I summarise the work we've done at REGUA so far, highlight some of the distinctive and endemic species that have been identified at the Reserve, and show how guests at the REGUA lodge can get involved.
