PETERSON FIELD GUIDE TO MOTHS OF NORTHEASTERN NORTH AMERICA
Covering nearly 1500 species, illustrated by close to 2000 colour photographs, this book helps identify moths as they are found in their natural resting positions. Most macromoth species accounts include maps (guided by ecoregions) to depict ranges, flight periods are represented visually for quick reference, and of course, the plates utilize the Peterson identification system of arrows to highlight key features for confirming the ID of a species. The book covers the northeastern part of North America, from New Brunswick to Virginia, Missouri to Minnesota, but can still be useful in other parts of the continent.
The book is AVAILABLE NOW, and retails for about US$21 / CA$32. It is currently available at many bookstores and most online retailers.
