General description of LepiLED
The lamp is designed for the attraction of nocturnal Lepidoptera and other insects, and it is efficient, relatively lightweight (480 g), handy, robust and water proof. It is recommended however to protect batteries from rain, e.g. by using plastic bags or containers. The lamp is especially suitable for working in remote areas, and the equipment can easily be transported in backpacks and on air planes.
LepiLED is made of anodized aluminium and a borosilicate glass cylinder. The cooling system is passive and the lamp is waterproof. Borosilicate glass (3 mm) is generally long-lived and very tough but not unbreakable. The emitted light (and radiation) is intense, and some people feel dazzled. When used in in gauze cylinders (‘light towers’), the dazzling is
less intense. Cylinders can be replaced, e.g., a matt cylider fully reduces the dazzling, but efficiency / emission is also reduced to some extent (see Brehm 2017).
The lamp can be operated with a voltage between 5 and 12 V DC. The lamp is equipped with a 2 meter cable with USB plug, optimized for the use with powerbank batteries. For the use with other batteries, adapters are required. Powerbank batteries can be recharged with solar panels.

My research focus since 1999 are macroecology, biogeography and systematics of species-rich moth communities in the Neotropics, particularly Ecuador and Costa Rica. I am employed as researcher at the Phyletisches Museum in Jena where I am also designing exhibitions and curating the entomology collection.
Focal groups are the species-rich moth clades of Geometridae (looper moths) and Erebidae-Arctiinae (tiger moths and woolly bears). An important study area was situated in and around the Podocarpus National Park in southern Ecuador where moths were investigated along environmental gradients between ca. 1000 and 3000 m a.s.l. The ca. 1460 km2 large National Park is one of the biologically richest areas in the world.
More than 2000 species of Geometridae and 450 species of Erebidae-Arctiinae have been recorded in southern Ecuador so far - more than anywhere else in the world. COI Barcoding means that we have sampled a short fragment of the COI gene of the moths that is particularly well suited to distinguish species. We estimate that at least 50% of the species collected in the area are new to science. Many new species will hopefully be described in the next years, but this requires time and financial resources. If you would like to support this work, please contact email@example.com for further information. It is possible that species will be named after you and your friends.
Within the last five years, my research was supported by Barcoding Canada, the Baseler Stiftung für Biologische Forschung (Barcoding Ecuador) as well as by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (three trips to Ecuador and funding for a new project in Peru).
In August and September 2016 we have started a new project in SE Peru (Cosnipata valley) along a nearly complete elevational gradient, together with Dr Matthias Nuß (Senckenberg Museum Dresden) and Prof. Gerardo Lamas and Juan Grados (Natural History Museum Lima) and Daniel Bolt (Switzerland). The first trip to the area has been extremely successful and the samples are now processed. Funding from the Ernst Abbe Stiftung (Jena) is acknowledged that will allow barcoding of ca. 3000 moth specimens.
A new elevational gradient study in the Peruvian Andes
A new project was launched in Peru in August / September 2016. The project is funded by DFG grants (establishment of an international cooperation). Participants: Matthias Nuss, Daniel Bolt, Gunnar Brehm, Juan Grados, Gerardo Lamas. Funding for the barcoding of ca. 3000 specimens comes from the Ernst Abbe Stiftung (Jena).
Project sketch (from grant proposal)
The aim of the project is the establishment of an international cooperation of the applicantswith our colleagues Prof. G. Lamas and J. Grados at the Zoological Museum in Lima. The cooperation is intended to foster the investigation of substantial parts of the extremely species rich moth communities in the wet tropical Andes – for the first time along an almost complete elevational gradient. We therefore plan a first workshop in a promising study area in South East Peru (Costñipata region) This will have an emphasis on practical aspects, with regard to the development of joint working and sampling methods during joint field work as well as to check the conditions in the field and the suitability of the area for the planned studies. While GB and MN are well familiar with other elevational gradients in the Neotropics (e.g. Bolivia,
Ecuador and Costa Rica), our Peruvian counterparts have been working for many years in the Costñipata region. Our stay will mainly take place at the scientific stations of Wayqecha (3000 m) and Villa Carmen (500 m), followed by a stay of several days at the museum in Lima. Here, existing collections will be explored by material from the Costñipata region. The samples from the field as well as from the museum will mostly be exported, processed and analysed in Germany, and the material will be divided and returned later between the participating institutions, respectively. DNA Barcoding (COI gene) will play an important role for the accelerated delineation of species. About half a year later we will organise a second workshop in Dresden, Germany. Beside our Peruvian counterparts, we will invite leading entomologists, statisticians and other experts (altogether 10 participants). The aim of thesecond workshop will be the discussion of experiences gathered during fieldwork in Peru and of the first results. As an outcome, we aim to formulate two or three specific research proposals (insect diversity along the elevational gradient) to be submitted in mid 2017.
