Will Lyssa zampa, the tropical swallowtail moth, make a big appearance this year?

Otterman speaks...

The tropical swallowtail moth flew in to the corridor outside Starbucks at NUS MD11 last Saturday amidst a meeting about the Evening of Biodiversity.

The next morning I received two other sightings from the south-west, Keppel and Marina, and just now another and another. Looks like its time to post a reminder about submitting sightings though the Habitatnews webpage sidebar (http://tinyurl.com/habitatnews-records) and email me photos at habitatnews@sivasothi.com.

Lyssa zampa appears in urban environments every year and on many months, but in some years it peaks with large occurrences around May – August and the last such peak was observed in 2005.

We are always not he look out for the next big emergence.
