Excerpt: Many lepidopterists agree that if mechanically disturbed, butterflies may be attracted to fluorescent light. Yet the entire problem of the attraction of day-flying Lepidoptera to light i s still in the data-collecting stage, and records indicate that mechanical disturbance may not always be a determining factor. Numerous papers on the problem have appeared in recent years, especially in the J.Lepid. Soc., which may be consulted for bibliographical details not attempted in this collection note.
