      1. Isn't it nice to be able to ID some of these beauties! Posted 10 days ago
        1. Yes, makes me so happy each time we manage to ID one, which is why Peter should include more easy ones.

          with 3,500+ Leps documented and this Colombia list getting close to 1,000 entries, we got a nice thing going.

          1. Haha -- yes! More easy ones please. Although, I love the challenging ones too, but get impatient waiting and hoping that a moth expert will chime in with the correct IDs. Posted 10 days ago
            1. Ha ha more easy ones indeed. Posted 10 days ago
          2. Agreed. I understand there are an estimated 27 thousand species in Colombia so we have only 26 thousnd to go.
