Magic Lantern Slide: Drinker Moth, Odonestis potatoria (slide)


Alfred Rowden was a keen amateur photographer and natural historian in Exeter. He often gave talks at local field clubs, illustrated with magic lantern slides that he created or purchased from commercial manufacturers. He recorded scenery and wildlife specimens around Devon. Alfred has hand-painted this black and white photograph to represent the colours of the moth and foliage.
