Guest Report on Saturniidae of Mount Totumas Cloud Forest

Jean-Marc Gayman, from France, visited Mount Totumas in October 2014 with a group of friends and made the following report on the Saturniidae (silk moth family) of Mount Totumas Cloud Forest along with a site he visited in Ecuador. A great description of some of the species that are possible to see here at MTCF. Thank you Jean-Marc for sharing this interesting publication.
