********************** ABOUT THE LEPS-L LIST *************************
The Lepidoptera Listserver, or LEPS-L, is a general purpose electronic
forum for those with an interest in butterflies and moths.  Detailed
information can be found on the LEPS-L home page, at:
       LEPS-L HOME PAGE = http://www.peabody.yale.edu/other/lepsl
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
LEPS-L was started in November 1994, and is presently supported via
Listproc on a Unix computer located at Yale University, New Haven,
Connecticut.  LEPS-L is the successor to leps at kaiwan.com, which was
phased out in December 1994.  SBEL was launched in November 1994, and
LEPS-L and SBEL were conected by the gateway into a unified forum in
January 1995, to allow subscribers latitude in how they receive posts.
The email traffic to LEPS-L/SBEL is archived in several places,
including at http://www.dejanews.com and http://www.reference.com, and
is also available as .zip files via the LEPS-L home page.
The volume of messages on LEPS-L/SBEL varies, but generally runs
between 5-25 per day.  The Online Lepidopterists' Who's Who (OLWW),
formerly a LEPS-L archive file, has followed its maintainer, Phil
Schappert, to Texas at http://www.esb.utexas.edu/philjs/olww/olww.html

************* COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS ON LEPS-L/SBEL *****************
Please note that the charter of SBEL (available online via the LEPS-L
home page) disallows postings that deal with commercial transactions
in Lepidoptera.  Technically, LEPS-L does not carry this restriction.
However, because LEPS-L and SBEL are connected by a gateway, and
because of SBEL's charter, contributors to LEPS-L/SBEL are asked to
please refrain from posting overtly commercial messages that otherwise
do not contribute to broader discussions about Lepidoptera.
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.  The list leps-livestock-list at leach.nhm.ac.uk is a forum
specifically welcoming commercial trade notices, and can be joined by
sending a subscribe request to majordomo at leach.nhm.ac.uk
Questions and/or comments about LEPS-L may be addressed to the LEPS-L
listowner, Larry Gall, at lawrence.gall at yale.edu
