May 2013 Update on IndianMoths group data collection efforts

IndianMoths project on iNaturalist is making good progress and we are happy to note that since the last post, we have almost doubled members (20+) and records (2000+). We have some new members like Purnendu and Rohit adding large data sets and members like Nuwan, Dr Vijay Anand and chiefredearth continuing to add records meticulously. 

Here is the updated map of the records:

We still need to cover a lot of ground. Let is start with east coast. Members from Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and West Bengal, please post your records. 

We are hoping to get many more records pouring in, once monsoon hits western ghats and also with National Moth Week programs. If you have not decided yet, look at this map and decide of you want to join an event in your area or organize one.

Let us all contribute and try to surpass the target of 5000 records by end of 2013.
