          Determination by Genitalia Examination (gen. det.)
Several species can not be easily identified from external features. The Minor's, Ear's, Grey/Dark Dagger, Lesser Common/Common Rustic and November, Pale November and Autumnal Moth are the classic examples. Also several Pugs and many micros will require advanced determination. For these species it is necessary to resort to genitalia examination, usually via a full dissection, to firmly establish the identity of the moth. Please retain specimens that require advanced determination. contact: Jim Wheeler or Jon Clifton. Microscopes and equipment visit Anglian Lepidopterist Supplies
