The words "dead butterflies" seems to be another expression of the anti collecting movement. Jeffrey Glassberg used the term "dead butterflies" in a recent book review, it has appeared in a number of recent postings on this and other lists, and, the term "illustration of specimens" has been replaced by "pictures of dead butterfies" by many watchers and those associated with NABA. 

If you are a Lepidopterist, it almost makes you want to spit!
