Oblique Streaktail ID event

Hi everyone!

We're happy to announce an online meeting next week! This is a follow-up to the pilot event a month or so ago that was announced on the forum.

Here are the details:

The Zoom meeting will open at approximately 4 P.M. EST on Sunday the 17th.

The plan is to focus on the Oblique Streaktail, Allograpta obliqua. We'll start by taking a quick look at our key to Allograpta in the Nearctic region. You'll each be provided with a unique set of observations of A. obliqua to practice on, and we can address questions that come up as a group.
