The British entomologist Ivor Picardo passed away yesterday.
A message from his brother : "Ivor Picardo sadly passed away on friday 16th June after a short fight with cancer. His family are heartbroken and devastated but have the peace of mind that he was comfortable and that they were embracing him to the very end. He was loved as a Son, a Brother, an Uncle to baby Miriam, & a Friend to many, and so he shall be remembered. He will be buried in Milton Keynes near where his family live. More information regarding funeral arrangements will follow from his brother Jonathan Picardo . RIP dearest Brother"
I was a "friend" of him on facebook and liked a lot all the pictures of the Saturniidae he loved to breed.
