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.
