The New England Entomological Society will be holding its annual spring meeting this March 11, from 10am to 1pm at the Greater Worcester Land Trust offices in Worcester, MA. From 12-1 we will have a special presentation “Sphingidae of Massachusetts” by NEES president Teá Kesting-Handly. Learn about this unique group of moths from a local perspective, from a Massachusetts researcher who has been studying Sphinx moths from across the country. Teá’s presentation will cover the taxonomy and ecology of sphinx moths, highlighting their characteristics and behaviors. She will also explain how to id Sphingids to species and provide tips on how you can track down these amazing moths (and their caterpillars) in the wild.

Both the entomological society meeting and the presentation are open to the public!
