Sangmi Lee joins Wedge Entomological Research Foundation Board of Directors

Our own Sangmi Lee was honored recently by being elected to join the Board of Directors of the Wedge Entomological Research Foundation.

Via the WERF website: “The Wedge Entomological Research Foundation (WERF) is a non- profit organization dedicated to producing taxonomic monographs on the moth fauna of the Nearctic Region. The Foundation’s principle focus is to publish biosystematic treatments on the estimated sixteen thousand plus species of moths found in North America in a series of monographs – “The Moths of North America” (MONA).

Excerpts from the Entomological Society of America news post: “Sangmi becoming one of the foremost experts in this difficult group. Sangmi developed the most comprehensive website on Gelechiidae which includes a global framework for phylogenetics and classification of Gelechioidea. She contributed educational videos on collecting and dissecting microlepidoptera that are available on YouTube. Sangmi is the Collection Manager of the Hasbrouck Insect Collection at Arizona State University, since 2012, and she serves as a referee to the Moth Photographs Group (MPG) site for identifications of gelechiids.”
