Hide Park (Toronto, Canada) 2016 NMW event. Guest post by Karen Yukich

Each summer the Toronto Entomologists’ Association holds a public Moth Night event in High Park in partnership with the High Park Nature Centre and High Park Nature.

Our event was held on July 28, 2016. As usual there were many micros plus about a dozen male gypsy moths and a few other mid-size moths. The total count was 65 (lower than usual) with 5 new species for High Park.

One new species, Variable Narrow-wing ”Magusa divaricata” is a more southerly species that sometimes strays further north in mid to late summer.
