International Lepidopterist’s Conference, Denver, July 23-29

Message from Frank Krell at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science —

Dear friends and colleagues,

5 days are left for the early registration for the international
Lepidopterist’s Conference in Denver in July. The regular registration is
not as cheap as the early rates! Some field trips are already pretty full.
Hurry up – it will be an enjoyable conference for everybody: Rocky
Mountains and prairie in July’s good weather; good food; cheap, but good
accomodation; access to the research collection in-house, with Boulder and
Fort Collins nearby; and an interesting program with lots of free field
BUT: From 1 May, the regular registration fees will be applied.

To remind you:
The combined 2012 Annual Meeting of the Lepidopterists’ Society and the
Societas Europaea Lepidopterologica will be hosted by the Denver Museum of
Nature & Science from 23 to 29 July 2012. No membership necessary.
For registration and additional information visit

Currently the following symposia are planned:
Digital imaging
Trans-Beringian connections in Noctuidea
Lepidoptera – plant interactions
New developments in zoological nomenclature

Contributions do not need to fit into one of those symposia!

Please send your suggested talk and poster titles (and abstracts when
available) to the program chair, Todd Gilligan, at
tgilliga AT<> AND copy to
