Mothfest 2013

Every couple of years a group of individuals, professionals and amateurs, gather at the Australian National Insect collection, Canberra for a weekend of talk and study. This was the 6th confab. There is no formal agenda. Those who desire to tell the group about their activities are invited to present a 10 minute talk. This is mainly an opportunity to meet and greet fellow "moth-ers" and consult the ANIC Collection, the largest of its kind in Australia.

The meeting is organised by Marianne Horak, Ted Edwards AM and You Ning Su

Denis Wilson has a similar presentation on his blog.
