Dear colleagues,

This is just a general question directed at any Lep people on the list. I
get the impression that mating pairs flying in tandem is a rare occurrence
in moths (but common in butterflies). I know of just one instance (in a day
flying moth in Castaniidae) , but if anyone on this list knows of any
published reference to this behavior in moths I would be grateful to know.

Many thanks,

John Grehan
