UC Davis Biodiversity Day was a huge success!! I got to talk to a lot of people about leps (Lepidoptera)! One of the questions commonly asked is "what's the difference between a moth and a butterfly?" Well, you could use some generalizations: moths fly at night, butterflies fly during the day, moths have feathery antennae, butterflies have thin/clubbed antennae. However, there are so many exceptions to these rules. The truth is that butterflies and moths are the same; butterflies are just a recent lineage of moths. Did you know moths make up 94% of Lepidoptera? Only SIX percent of the order Lepidoptera are what we call "butterflies"! Thanks to @macro.wanderer for taking these pics with his fancy camera 😄I'm holding 2 of the drawers from the #bohartmuseum insect collection. •
