Hello All, I'm an entomologist from Southern NJ, USA specializing in mosquito ecology/biology and am the superintendent of a county mosquito control agency. I'm not so much into collecting anymore, but still am interested in what's going on in the collecting world. I've got a lot of hobbies, but one is birding. I'm thinking about a trip to Guyana to both see, maybe collect insects, and do birding too. Any help from those that have gone to Guyana recently and visited lodges that are good for insects and birds is very much appreciated.

Geoff Martin here from Darwin North Australia. I also spend as much time as possible in Lombok Indonesia. I am involved in butterfly/moth conservation and actively propagate host plants,trees and vines for sp in Aussie and Indonesia. Have studied the life history of the N T,s iconic Attacus wardi moth, and have been discovering their native host trees around Darwin.
My question is are there any amongst us that can source lepidoptera host plant seed,s ??. I am growing several sp of aristolochia and adenia /holrungia vines. My material is from North Australia and also Lombok. But my current search is for seeds of Zanonia indica the host plant for Parthenos sp butterflies (common name is the clipper). Geoff
