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.

b) 尖翅銀灰蝶 Curetis acuta (Moore, 1877) 與 同名的 尖翅銀灰蝶Curetis dentata (Moore, 1879) ~ (可能是相同品種,研究能為香港的物種正名)
