Genitalia image sets for selected dissection voucher specimens of Catocala (Noctuidae: Erebinae)


Genitalia were dissected and images taken by Hugo L. Kons Jr.  Images were taken with the GT Vision imaging system {GT} at the American Entomological Institute or the Automontage imaging system {AM} at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Entomology.  All structures are the natural three dimensional shape (not slide mounted) except for the juxta/anellus and abdominal cuticle (temporarily slide mounted for imaging).
