Included in every newsletter are reports on species occurrences in the southern United States. We encourage any and all members to report occurrences of even common species in our area. Listed below are state coordinators for each state in our area. Most of the records you send in will be included in the state reports, but records are open to editing by the respective state coordinator. Any unusual reports (exceptional species, state records, etc.) will require a good photograph or a specimen for confirmation.
The purpose of the Southern Lepidopterists’ Society is to help increase scientific knowledge and public awareness of the Lepidoptera of the southern (US) states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Membership is open to anyone with such interests.
The Society holds an official meeting open to all members once a year. See the News section for announcements and information about the annual meeting.
The Southern Lepidopterists’ News, which is published four times annually, is the official newsletter of the Society.
