"Margarinefly": Will it Catch On?
Some readers may recall a mention of "butterflies of the Jurassic" back in a July post on the Daily Entomologist. Dramatically resembling modern macrolepidopterans, these Mesozoic lacewings (Kalligrammatidae) were far more akin to antlions (doodlebugs, if you're a Southerner). You'll be able to find out more about them here (http://gentlecentipede.blogspot.com/2013/01/butterflies-before-butterflies-flowers.html)—and discover what a "margarinefly" is.
