The Weta Volume 45, July 2013

Author(s): Entomological Society of NZ


This is the news bulletin of the Entomological Society of New Zealand. The Weta promotes the study of the biology, ecology, taxonomy and control of insects and arachnids in an Australasian setting. The purpose of the bulletin is to provide a forum in which amateur and professional entomologists can record observations, news, views and the results of smaller research projects. Two issues are published in most years. 

The New Zealand Entomologist is a refereed journal that publishes original scientific articles that are of significance to New Zealand entomology. The subject may include insects, arachnids and any other terrestrial invertebrates. It is the official publication of the Entomological Society of New Zealand (Inc.). The Weta is the Society's news bulletin containing articles on entomological observations, techniques, reviews, and events.
