3.0 étoiles sur 5Useful, but disappointing.8 juillet 2006
Par Scott V. Carter - Publié sur Amazon.com
The reference text is very complete and detailed. However, when I found that most of the photo plates were black and white, I groaned. What I imagined I'd be receiving was a field guide with a good photo with each entry. As it is you have to flip back and forth from text to plate. A book with photo plates is really "old school" these days.

4.0 étoiles sur 5A Field Guide to Moths of Eastern North America (Special Publication / Virginia Museum of Natural History)24 février 2006
Par Nancy L. Cotton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Excellent source guide to moths of the Eastern United States. The photos in this edition lack clarity and need to be printed better. The author is superb. He is the authority in his field. All that is lacking is quality printing of the material.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Recently out of print, this is the best way to go!2 février 2006
Par Kenneth H. Sutherland - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the same classic Moths that Peterson Guides put out, only it's in the format of the Robert Anthony style guides that came out in the late '80s. White and a single color with a photo on the front. Inside, it's the same wonderfully complete Charles Covell book, un-updated as far as i can tell, but not numbered like the true Peterson Guides.
So, if you're looking for the contents of the book and to identify moths, this is the CHEAPest way to get a copy - and thank the Virginia Museum of Nat. History for working to get the reprint rights. If you are looking for a collector's version, it fills slot 30 better than the Easton Press leather edition because it looks like a Peterson Guide.

4.0 étoiles sur 5an excellent guide with a few shortcomings15 août 2006
Par John Sgammato - Publié sur Amazon.com
I finally found the original after years of searching, just about a month before this edition came out :(
I have used it for a year and find it very helpful. I have learned two things that help a lot:
1) Although the photo plates leave something to be desired, they get you most of the way to identification, and there are a number of websites you can use for confirmation;
2) It does not include recent invaders like the Large Underwing, and some of the ranges may have changed since the original text wa swritten.
5.0 étoiles sur 5Must have field guide for moths7 mai 2014
Par Joseph A. Verica - Publié sur Amazon.com
This guide is a must-have field guide for moth-ers. As an amature moth watcher, I prefer the Peterson Guide to moths, as it shows the moths in their natural pose as you would expect to find them in the field. This guide shows the moths in the classic pinning 4-wing poses. It also has a fair amount of text and covers moths that are missing from the Peterson Guide. It makes a nice complement.
