Subject: Lophocampa maculata


I am a biochemist at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. I am
conducting a research project on Lophocampa maculata, the spotted tussock
moth. I have been working with the species captured in Western Oregon. I
would like to do a series of comparative studies between the individuals I
have from Oregon and individuals from Eastern Canada or the Northeastern
U.S. I am trying to find someone who could provide me with either eggs or
first instar larvae this summer from a locaton in Northeastern North
America. I realize this will not be easy but I am hoping you might have some
ideas as how to proceed. Perhaps through the Lepidopterist Society I might
be able to contact someone who could help me. Any suggestions you might have
would be appreciated. I would, of course, cover the expense of shipping them
to me.

Thank you for consideration of my request.
