Explanation of Names
The Anisota continue to be quite confusing. Are they species, subspecies, races? Until the next study of them occurs we thought we would make these group pages so the images could be sorted into groups if not to species. When the status of the species in Anisota is resolved these images can be moved to their correct page and these group pages can be deleted.
