Website changed name...can you update this BG link entry?
The link given above for the "LBAM ID" currently redirects to a website call "TortAI" ("Tortricids of Agricultural Importance"). I'm presuming the "TortAI" web site is an expanded & improved version of the previous "LBAM ID" site.

Randy...can you edit this reference page to incorporate the new name? Also maybe remove the reference to Epiphyas postvittana in the link title...since the (currently named) TortAI site covers far more species than E. postvittana, and this page is referenced by BugGuide info pages for other species as well (e.g. on the Argyrotaenia franciscana, which is how I was led here).
