At ANGAIR's Social Evening on 27 August 2010, Marilyn Hewish showed us some of our most gorgeous and bizarre local moths and described how her work fits into exciting new developments in the study of Victorian moths.

But moths have their own place in the ecology of the natural world, and some of the Victorian ones are astonishingly large and colourful.” Thank you Marilyn, for this fascinating and informative presentation.
