Came home from vacation to find our book here!
What a beauty! And as Mike points out, the images are in color and of live as opposed to pinned moths, exactly what we need for those of us who photograph and examine living moths. Seabrooke's book signing tour schedule can be seen here. Disapointed to find it doesn't include Chicago :(

Moths of Northeastern North America - more info
.
Guide should include about 1300 species, illustrated by about 1500 photographs.

Both macromoths and many of the smaller micromoths will be treated in the guide.

The guide will present photographic images of moths as they are normally found in their resting postures.

"All of the images you see here are the actual images that will appear for those species on the identification pages of the guide."

The plates will utilize the Peterson identification system of arrows to highlight key features for confirming the ID of a species.

Range of coverage: Missouri - Virginia - New Brunswick - Minnesota.

Guide will include range maps rather than range descriptions.

The book is set to be released April 3, 2012, and will retail for US$28. Amazon discount: $19.14
