Night Bugs!

Night Bugs! - Full

This activity aims to show the diversity of nocturnal fauna, especially Lepidoptera (butterflies).

The order Lepidoptera is part of the insects class and, in Portugal only, there are about 3000 species of nocturnal butterflies!  In addition to butterflies, we are always visited by other arthropods, which makes this activity very interesting due to the high number of different species observed in a short period of time.

This activity is facilitated by Pedro Henriques e Fernando Pires.
