    Ken, I’ve looked through my MoV Part 3 book a dozen times and the Part 3 CD, but can’t find any reference to Chloroclystis sp. (1). Can you please let me know exactly where to look for a reference to Chloroclystis sp. (1), because I've found a moth that looks similar. Thank you

    Elaine, that name is not in the published book, but was given to me by Pater Marriott. It is very similar yo Chloroclystis catastreptes, but does not quite match that species. Peter may have included it in one of the updates to the book, but I have been a bit slack in adding all the updates and cannot check at present. I might refer back to Peter on this one.
