Moths of North America north of Mexico series now available digitally

The Moths of North America north of Mexico (MONA) series are an absolutely incredible resource for Lepidopterophiles - if you've ever seen one of the fascicles you'll know there is no better source of detailed information about our moth species.

Until now, the series was only available in hard copy and each issue was rather pricey - many $100+ and with over 30 fascicles to date (and growing!) it would cost a small fortune to acquire each, mostly putting it out of reach for many of us.

Well, wait no longer! The Wedge Entomological Research Foundation has made most available for free on their website:

Just click the "Free PDF" button next to the "Add to Cart" button to begin downloading each file. Note that many of the files are very large (the biggest is 500 mb and the whole set is about 6 gb) so you need a decent internet connection.

The colour plates suffer a bit in quality compared to the printed versions but otherwise the digital versions are a huge resource.
