Latest Petrophila Moth Research Published

I’m happy to report that my latest research on Petrophila moths has just been published in the Journal of Lepidopterists’ Society: “Identification and Distribution of the Petrophila fulicalis species group (Crambidae): Taking Advantage of Citizen Science Data”, J. Lep. Soc. 75(2):113-127 (June 2021).

This is the latest effort coming out of my interest in this genus and previously highlighted in these journal articles: (Sept 2020) (Aug 2020) (Aug 2019) (Aug 2019)

iNaturalist plays a prominent role in my published article and several iNaturalists contributed important photos for it. Below, I’m going to tag a lot of the people I need to thank for helping bring this article to fruition.

A downloadable pdf of the above article is available from my page on (Chuck Sexton) and can also be accessed from this DropBox folder, along with full-sized versions of the figures and maps:
(I hope I set up this DropBox link correctly. Let me know if you can't access it.)

I got my copy of the Lepidopterist on my desk and saw your article first off. I play to spend some time with it this week.

@juancruzado, En mi artículo, menciono su observación de Petrophila fulicalis en las cercanías de Ciudad Acuña que constituye un nuevo registro para México.

Congratulations Chuck! I'll be out of town mothing in AZ followed by family visit in WI so I won't be able to digest the new stuff for MPG for some weeks but if you see anything we need to correct, feel free to shoot me an email and I'll do my best to update. Excellent work!

Thank you very much Chuck; I think this makes it very important to continue making citizen science observations south of the border; In Mexico, much work is still needed to understand and document biodiversity
