	As an aside to my thesis research conducted on moths in Central 
Ontario, Canada I found that of the several hundred species present where 
I was trapping, a few species (or individuals?) would be in the traps at 
about 3-4 degrees C, with gradually increasing numbers up to about 16  
or 17 C at which temperature the numbers seemed to even out somewhat.  The 
warmest that I trapped at was 19 degrees C so I could not tell if there was
an upper threshold.
