About this book

A Guide to the Moths of Eastern North America, Charles V. Covell, Jr.'s classic guide to the moths of the states and provinces east of the 100th meridian, has been reissued by the Virginia Museum of Natural History. Originally published by Houghton-Mifflin Co. in 1984, A Field Guide to Moths of Eastern North America has been out of print since 1996. The book has been updated to reflecta the current status of species, genera, and families of moths that it includes.

A Field Guide to Moths of Eastern North America has long been recognized as the most authoritative introduction to the moths of eastern North America. Intended for non-specialists, but greatly appreciated by intermediate and advanced users, this book identifies and describes more than 1300 species in 59 families. The 1300 species, which include at least one in each of the 59 families present in the region, are those most likely to be encountered in eastern North America. Introductory chapters describe the anatomy and life cycle of moths and processes of collecting and preparing specimens. For each species, A Field Guide to Moths of Eastern North America includes a description during the adult stage, the range as it was known in 1984, the flight season for adults, their relative abundance, and selected other information. Individual moths are portrayed from above, with wings extended, in 63 plates, many in color, while selected anatomical features, primarily wing shape and venation patterns, are illustrated in 76 black-and-white line drawings and photographs. Back and end matter includes a glossary of technical terms, generalized anatomical drawings, silhouettes of living moths at rest, and selected references and sources of additional information.
