Join CNPS Redbud Chapter for an informational webinar on Adela moths and Native Plants with Al Ludtke and Lisa Couper on March 9th at 6 pm.

Presentation Summary: 

Several years ago Al Ludtke and Lisa Couper set out to learn about the Fairy Moths, aka Longhorn Moths – because of their unusually long antennae, of California.As of last year they have been able to photographically document the oviposition of all eight of the described California species. They believe that they have discovered at least one new species and will briefly present the evidence for that, including photos, as for the other species. They have learned a lot about the moths along the way and would like to share with you the implications of what they have learned as it pertains to the evolutionary history of the host plants of the Adelids and vice versa. Al will deliver a presentation of the plants the moths utilize and close-ups of the moths on their plants. Most of the photos in the presentation are by Lisa, but others have also contributed.

Location: Zoom registration.
