High Park, Toronto – Annual Moth Night Highlights for 2017. Gust post by Karen Yukich

Our event was held on July 26, which turned out to be a rainy evening. In spite of the less than promising conditions we were glad we went ahead anyway as those who did attend were quite keen and had a great time, especially the kids. The observations included a record high number of Gypsy Moths (15) and record low number of total species (45), of which 5 were new for this event.

This event is held each summer by the Toronto Entomologists’ Association in partnership with the High Park Nature Centre and High Park Nature. Cumulative results are posted here: http://www.highparknature.org/wiki/wiki.php?n=Insects.MothGallery
