Pictorial Guide Books for Moths 蛾類圖鑑

I am pleased to announce that HKLS will embark to publish a series of pictorial guide books for Hong Kong moths with Dr. Roger Kendrick as our editor in coming years.

本會計劃在未來數年出版一系列的香港蛾類圖鑑,並非常榮幸獲香港蛾類專家Dr. Roger Kendrick出任主編。

We will kick start the first volume on five families including Saturniidae, Bombycidae, Eupterotidae, Uraniidae (part) and IMG-20140702-WA0001-uploadZygaenidae.

圖鑑系列計劃分階段推出,第一冊將包含天蠶蛾, 蠶蛾, 帶蛾, 燕蛾(部份)及斑蛾等五科的蛾類。

We will try to show all recorded species of Hong Kong by specimens and live photographs in situ if possible.

圖鑑以包含該科在香港記錄過的所有蛾類為目標,圖片以標本照為主導,並盡量附以野外照。

Any member who wishes to contribute his or her moth photographs, please send them to info@hkls.org.

如任何會員願意提供以上五科蛾類的照片作出版圖鑑之用,請以電郵提交:info@hkls.org

Your photographs if published will be duly acknowledged and credited accordingly.

照片如獲選用,本會將鳴謝攝影師。

Notocrypta paralysos 窄紋袖弄蝶

窄紋袖弄蝶 Notocrypta paralysos

首張香港野外成蟲記錄照
The first photographic record of  adult in the wild of HK

香港鱗翅目學會致力研究本港的蝴蝶品種及生活史,近年由本會楊建業先主理的香港弄蝶研究的項目,在香港多處地方發現從未紀錄過的窄紋袖弄蝶幼體,然而野外成蟲的紀錄卻依然芳蹤渺然;直至2014年4月份,本會會員終於在大嶼山發現窄紋袖弄蝶的成蟲真身並成功拍攝首張野外成蟲記錄照,這正為此研究項目劃上完美的句號。10414457_754836554567178_959190307656689776_n

本會將在短期內公佈窄紋袖弄蝶研究詳情,請密切留意。

HKLS is always devoted herself to the science of lepidopterology. In recent years, Mr. James Young is conducting a study of HK skippers and has discovered eggs and larvae of Notocrypta paralysos, a species never been recorded before, in various places in Hong Kong. However, its adult form was still hard to find despite the wide spread of immature forms in the wild. It was until April 2014, a HKLS member managed to have a sighting in Lantau Island and got a first photographic record of the adult in the wild. This sighting also complemented the missing information of the study of HK skippers.

HKLS will announce details of Notocrypta paralysos in near future. Please stay tuned.

Looking forward 2014 – 2015 2014年至2015年展望

To All Members

               Forward looking

The weekday work shop will resume. The date will be announced from time to time on our HKLS website. There may be another work shop for the weekend. However, it depends on our members participation.

The 1st work shop will start at 9:30am on 17th June 2014. There will be a lot of follow up work to be done including fumigating our specimen boxes, inventoring our books and specimens and of course cleaning our HKLS office.

The projects for the year that we envisage to carry out are :

1)   Butterfly survey – publishing last year results and designing this year location. We are still looking for a coordinator for the survey;

2)   Id works for several species including investigating references, dissecting of genitalia and wing venation analysis of connecting points for the following species:

a)    Ypthima imitans Elwes & Edwards, 1893 vs Ypthima motschulskyi (Bremer & Grey, 1853);

b)   Curetis acuta Moore, 1877 vs Curetis dentata Moore, 1879 ( same species for correction of names in HK);

c)    Heliophorus epicles (Godart, [1824]) vs Heliophorus ila (de Nicéville & Martin, [1896]);

We plan to offer talks on butterflies once every two months.

Volume 5 of our life history series is planned to go ahead depending finding a coordinator. We should have some ideas in coming weeks.

For the moth lovers, I hope to start working on some life histories of macro moth families. However, it again depends on our members involvement.

If you are interested and wish to join, please let me know.
