What's New?

Lots of new things are happening with the Butterflies and Moths of North America (BAMONA) project. Users frequently submit new butterfly and moth sightings, new photographs are regularly added to the image gallery and species profiles, new users are registering so they can participate, and BAMONA staff work on updating taxonomy and adding new features like the interactive species occurrence maps.
