Kalatope Moths – Family ‘Erebidae’

I’ve spent last few months trying to sort out my moth collection from last year (2011), Dr. Roger Kendrick has been immensely helpful in the classification and identification of the ‘Moths of Kalatope Sanctuary’ and I am very grateful to him for devoting so much time and energy in sorting this collection, during this process Dr. Kendrick also guided me towards the new changes in the taxonomy of moths and helped me classify them in that order…. I am equally grateful to Peter Smetacek for also helping with a lot of identifications. In fact without these two pillars of ‘IndianMoths’ group on Facebook it would have been very difficult to sort this data.

I am presenting a series of check-lists linked to the respective pages (with photographs), starting with the ‘Erebidae‘ family… simply because it was the largest group of moths I found in Kalatope…
