DONATION 標本捐贈

Today, we are honoured to receiving over 1000 specimens (of both butterflies and moths including also some other insects) donated to our Society by a generous amateur. His collection goes back some 40 years. It includes the remnant of Castalius rosimon (Lycaenidae).

We treasure his collection and the specimens will be used to further promote lepidopterolgy.

We thank him again for his kind support.

James Young

Chairman

今天,本會好榮幸得到一位資深蝴蝶愛好者慷慨損贈了超過1000隻(包括蝴蝶、飛蛾和一些昆蟲)的珍藏標本,部分收藏品更超過40年歷史,包括極之罕有的灰蝶科 – 豹灰蝶, 極其珍貴。

本會將好好珍惜及收藏此些珍品,作為日後推廣鱗翅目昆蟲之用。

再次感謝損贈者對本會的熱心及支持!

DISCIPLINARY ACTION

Mr. Arex Sui Hong,  LI  李肇康 was struck off from the HKLS Membership with immediate effect as of 12th January 2016.

His outspoken appearance in the interview with Apple Daily on 15th February 2015 http://hk.apple.nextmedia.com/news/art/20150215/19043133 was not authorised and did not reflect the view of the Council nor the Society.

A Word of Thanks

We would like to thank our patrons for our publications and those who came afar to the ‘North District Flower, Insect and Fish Festival’ for the fifth edition of our new Butterfly Pictorial Guide.

Our sales were a record for the Society. All our proceeds will go towards sustaining the Society’s further study of butterflies and moths. We thank again all members who voluntarily assisted in setting up, and helped out at, the HKLS booth at the Fair. Special thanks also go to our friends from the Mainland who came to support us with encouragement and extended helping hands in selling our publications.

Many welcomed the new book with specimens and pictures of the new Bibasis jaina, Parnara apostata, Allotinus drumila and a live photograph of the female Baoris farri. However, we are very sorry to say that, in light of the tight time frame during our editorial process, we discovered a few errors following publication. We kindly ask our patrons to pardon the team who worked in their free time for nothing in return.

James John Young

Chairman

New Year’s Message by the Chairman

Happy New Year to all members. May you all have a prosperous and joyful year ahead.

The year 2015 has almost come to an end. We have accomplished a lot looking back the past year.

Our Society is formed as a company limited by guarantee and registered charitable organization. The Councils as well as members who have assisted in various of our events and projects are all working as volunteers offering themselves to the Society.

We had not paid out any compensation nor reimbursement of expenses to all members as we had voted against any such payments. All cash receipts to the Society are for the further study and education of the butterflies and moths.

We had published two volumes of our moths series and the recent tiny pictorial guide book for butterflies – 5th edition during the North District Fair. A series of papers on DNA bar coding of several hesperids are planned with a couple already published during the year, leading to the final – a forensic investigation of a cryptic species in Hong Kong, hopefully in the coming year.

The book on “A study of skippers (family Hesperiidae) in Hong Kong” is on the pipeline and hope to finish by 2016. Some members are working on a review of a certain genus of butterflies in Hong Kong and the paper is hoped to finalize in the later part of 2016.

We have planned to have a couple of open days of our Society’s office to the public in the coming months and welcome any schools or education bodies alike to contact us for their private visits. Our office holds many specimens and books of butterflies and moths.

Finally, I would thank all members and friends who have offered their assistance to the Society and patrons for our books to support our course in the study of butterflies and moths, not the least our AFCD who has maintained our wonderful Country Parks for us.

James John Young

Chairman
