Latest additions and news

Werk mee aan het project "Faunistiek van de Belgische Lepidoptera" door uw waarnemingen door te sturen naar Willy De Prins of Chris Steeman. U kan daarvoor een Excel-lijst met alle Belgische soorten downloaden waarop u gemakkelijk de waarnemingen kunt aanduiden.

Nieuwe provinciegegevens, en zeker nieuwe soorten voor de Belgische fauna, zullen in de toekomst nog slechts aanvaard worden als er een bewijs voor geleverd wordt, dit om foutieve gegevens zoveel mogelijk te vermijden. Dit bewijs kan een goede kwaliteit foto (zij- en bovenaanzicht) zijn of een verzameld exemplaar. Digitale foto's kan u per e-mail sturen naar
Chris Steeman, exemplaren kan u eventueel sturen naar Willy De Prins (Dorpstraat 401B, 3061 Leefdaal) maar bij voorkeur meebrengen op een van de vergaderingen van de V.V.E. in het Vrieselhof, 2530 Oelegem-Ranst.
