Dear All,
    Has any of you studied the effect of Endosulphan on Butterflies and Moths ? For last few months we are seeing hundreds of butterflies dying in the kerala state of India in a Mango Plantation.Here they are using Endosulphan extensively. The species which are affected are Euploea core, Euploea sylvester, Tirumala limniace, Tirumala septentrionis, Pachliopta hector, Papilio polymnestor and Danaus genutia.
 Any information in this regard will be highly appreciated as the lives of many lepidopteran species is at stake.
