    Oops. Didn't update the link. Thanks!

    Henry, feel free to extract anecdotes from the Blog for your "5-minute" talk to your colleagues. That should make the talk even more interesting. I'd safely say that you'll end up having a 2 hour talk at the end.

    Thanks guys. At least I know there are people who read the articles that Horace and I write weekly.

    Bobby, yes it would be nice, but unfortunately these Scientific Latin names don't have that type of public appeal that a dictionary service provider would want to feature those words.

    Life Histories series : The Narrow Spark (Sinthusa nasaka amba)

    Horace manages to nail the life history of the Narrow Spark. This species was not in the early authors' checklists and was discovered by ButterflyCircle members in a small forested patch on the fringe of the nature reserves. Our sharp-eyed life histories expert managed to spot a female ovipositing on its host plant, and the rest, they say, is (life) history!
