20.03.2011 12:44,

This is just not for everybody but somebody.....:(

20.03.2011 14:03, Dmitriy Pozhogin

It's not even for somebody. Various images picked out of different sources, that's all. No any systematics.

20.03.2011 20:36,

Weeeeeel... First, I'm not a pro yet. Second, I'm just 12 and third: this is the best website of all I found; the rest are real "EW-W-W". And fourth: that's why I'm here, to GET EXPERIENCED...

20.03.2011 21:53, Dmitriy Pozhogin

12-aged is not already a babe! For me there is nothing interesting at No identifier I found. Lots of mistakes. As for diurnals, it's all copied from a Wijbren Landman book. And images are all from that. It might be more interesting for beginning amateurs to look at images. Sad.

20.03.2011 21:57, Dmitriy Pozhogin

For those who live in the European part of Russia the best website is There is also identifier and no flubs.

21.03.2011 5:16,

Dmitry, thanks a lot for protection! I'll check out this website right today. As for copying stuff, I agree. By the way, for diurnals they stole not only Landman;) That's for sure a bi-i-i-i-igie minus to them!

The website about African Heterocera. Seems helpful.

Something forgotten this topic, but nevertheless it is always relevant ......
The other day, I recommend a good resource on Aganainae:

16.11.2014 21:46, Dmitriy Pozhogin

16.11.2014 21:57, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Now their sources added. From there, the data can inspire us.

18.01.2015 13:37, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Actually: Now Golubets one trying to explain well, and stumbled: "Tropical Lycaenidae"
It was not in my piggy bank yet.

18.01.2015 19:56, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Another found: "Butterflies of Peninsular Malaysia"
Very handy, I feel :)

27.01.2015 1:13, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Interesting site for butterflies:

15.02.2015 11:32, Vasiliy Feoktistov

A good site with a working search engine on leave (until finally osvoilego):

19.02.2015 19:22, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Pertti Pakkanen "Vutterflies and Moths in Finland":
Although the Finnish language, but you can understand.

19.04.2015 12:28, Vasiliy Feoktistov
I think it may also be useful in spite of the language features)))

Announcement: finalized for publication edition of 'A Preliminary Guide to the Pyralid Moths of Borneo', author Dr Stephen Sutton. Publication of first instance is expected in mid-June 2015.

05.05.2015 20:21, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Ah, how much it will cost (((.

05.05.2015 23:49, Peter Khramov

Well, the preliminaries, certainly penny!

06.05.2015 13:03, Alex Dumchus

I would have bought determinants Rhopalocera the tropics at a reasonable price, such as: "Butterflies of Thailand" publication Monastery and Devyatkina about butterflies Vietnam ....

06.05.2015 15:22, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Peter! Buy a penny and put it here to determine !!! And I'm gallery ognevok Borneo done, specific to the species!

06.05.2015 15:29, Peter Khramov

Dima! What about copyright? !! Worthless here and so to take and apply here! Though even for the sake of determining ognevok to type!

06.05.2015 21:10, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Do not worry. Over time, if not imposed here, so it will be imposed elsewhere :) Vaughn Shipunov lives quite normally with his library. I respect people who are treated by greed. Sam would have downloaded a pdf or djvu ......

07.05.2015 10:44, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Make the closed library for moderators / active participants. And people will be pulled.

07.05.2015 11:39, Alexandr Zhakov

Available literature does not guarantee the correctness of the determination, especially photos. Excusable not to expose some photos to photographers whose species, to put it mildly, is not the first place. But put an indefinite collection material, it is not a good tone, and can only be an exception (this is my opinion).In the literature, the main thing: the diagnosis of the type, distribution, image of a butterfly and her genitals. Since all the normal determinants Nenashev on the language, the diagnosis can not be read, and if you read something that does not clear, Google is not taxis. Distribution always helps. Pictures are good, but the quality of scans? remain genitals. Who cooks? there are not many.Why strike site, creating a library of pirated scans. This is necessary, I think, would get all their own. :)))
