I found so many amazing caterpillars today! I have to try to identify them as best I can. Until I do they will be beautiful, gorgeous, fabulous, cute and stunning :) Frederick County, MD

This moth decided to land on the tripod holding my lights.

apparently these eat their shed skin

A beautiful specimen of Mottled Prominent (Macrurocampa marthesia) hiding out on the side of my garage after yesterday's rainstorm. You can really see the green coloration we typically see up here in the Northeastern US.

Mottled Prominent (Macrurocampa marthesia) on oak. Lower Sand Flat Pond, Frederick Municipal Forest, Frederick County, Maryland.

Visiting my lighting set-up, consisting of a 4 foot black light, and a huge 6 inch mogul base 200 watt incandescent light. These were placed up against a new king size cotton sheet neatly pinned up.

 

A great get-away for my wife and I from August 5th. to August 7th. Enjoy scenic pictures, and lots of beautiful moths.

The lighting rigs I used this time was a 4 foot black light, and a large 6 inch 200 watt incandescent mogul base light bulb, all near a new white cotton king sized sheet.

Formerly known as Lebanon State Forest, visitors are greeted by the fresh scent of pines. Today's forested acres are a strong contrast to the barren, cleared land that existed in the 1800s. The Lebanon Glass Works was established in 1851 and was successful until 1867, when it shut down after depleting the supply of wood necessary for the furnace to operate.

Today, hikers can follow the sandy trails and roads that crisscross the forest, sometimes passing near the remains of stone or brick structures or where large depressions indicate the location of what was once a bustling town. Pure, iron-rich streams flow through acres of swampy land covered with dense stands of Atlantic white cedar.

1906 ENTOMOLOGICAL SOCIETY. 109 basitriens Walker, Lophodonta ferruginea Packard, Pheosia dimidiata Her- rich-Scliaeffer, Heterocam-pa hiundata Walker, lanassa lignicolor Walker. Notodotita basitriens Walker is another fine insect. It is an inch and ten lines in expanse of wings. Its fore-wings are brownish-grey, with a red- dish brown base outlined with brown of a darker shade. It has two trans- verse lines, scalloped inwardly, at about two-thirds of the length of the wing. The bases of the wings of basitriens are suggestive of a small moth, with outspread wings, superincumbent upon the larger one, but in reverse posi- tion. Heterocampa pulverea Grote and Robinson, a pretty grey moth, has somewhat of the same appearance (on a more extended sca,le); and so has Macrurocampa marthesia Cramer. The prevailing colour of the last named insect is creamy white. The base of the wing is of a warm brown outlined with darker brown. Near the centre of the wing is a distinct brown oval spot. The insect is an inch and eight lines in extent of wings. H. pulverea is an inch and a half. A remarkably handsome moth is Lophodonta ferruginea Packard. It is two inches in expanse of wings. Its prevailing tint is a rich cofiee-colour. It has white and brown scalloped lines crossing the fore-wings, and a large white patch on the costa of each of these wings. Pheosia dimidiata Herrich-Schaeffer (Fig. 30) is one of the largest of our Notodontians—it is two inches and two lines in expanse of wings. It is our Canadian "Swallow Prominent." The prevailing colour of its wings is white; but in some specimens this is tinged with brown. It has an elon- gated dark brown patch on the lower part of the costa, broken into by a white curved line. Along the inner margin, the fore-wing is dark brown;
