Acknowledgements This web site would not have been possible without the continuous support and encouragement of my wife Claudia Violette, the generous assistance of Malte Ebach, and the kind help with information and images from many professionals and enthusiasts througout the world. To everyone I am eternally grateful. 1990. Hunting Korscheltellus gracilis larvae mid winter Vermont.
My interest in ghost moth evolution began in my first graduate year when I conducted a small project looking at the occurrence of wood-boring insects at different stages of forest succession. This was followed by a PhD project on the developmental ecology of Aenetus virescens in New Zealand where my interest encompassed all aspects of ghost moth biology.
I am particularly interested in the evolutionary relationships between ghost moths. Although other responsibilities have curtailed much of that effort of the last decade, I continue to work on developing a better understanding of the global systematics and biogeography of this much overlooked group of moths.
