First moth expedition complete

Thank you citizen scientists for helping complete the first expedition digitizing the spectacular underwing moths! With over 600 images, its remarkable that this expedition was completed in just about 1 week. Thank you for taking the time to help. With this information, researchers can begin to examine their distribution changes, changes in host plants, and impact of climate change during the last century.

Be on the look out for the next underwing moth expedition coming very soon. The next expedition will have many new species. Maybe you will notice the differences!
