Leps-l -- Lepidoptera Listserver


About Leps-l
English (USA)

The Lepidoptera Listserver, or LEPS-L, is a general purpose electronic forum for those with an interest in butterflies and moths.

There is a computer gateway that connects LEPS-L to the Usenet Newsgroup called sci.bio.entomology.lepidoptera (SBEL), and this means that submissions sent to the former cross-post to the latter, and vice versa. You need only partake of one or the other forum to get all messages.

LEPS-L was started in November 1994, and is presently supported via mailman on a Unix computer located at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. LEPS-L is the successor to leps@kaiwan.com, which was phased out in December 1994. SBEL was launched in November 1994, and LEPS-L and SBEL were connected by the gateway into a unified forum in January 1995, to allow subscribers latitude in how they receive posts.

Because some subscribers to LEPS-L pay network access fees based upon the amount of material they receive, LEPS-L/SBEL subscribers should always write succinctly and generally refrain from sending attachments (e.g., images) to the list along with messages. Private email arrangements should be made "off list" for such purposes.

Contributors to LEPS-L/SBEL are asked to please refrain from posting messages regarding overtly commercial transactions in Lepidoptera that otherwise do not contribute to broader discussions. Since LEPS-L/SBEL is one of the largest and most widely known electronic forums for Lepidoptera discussions, it is inevitable that occasional overtly commercial postings will occur, and so subscribers to LEPS-L/SBEL should exercise restrained, sound judgment in such instances.
