While studying moths in the tropics, Michael Boppré (shown here on the river at the Panguana field station near Yuyapichis, Huánuco, Peru) and his team discovered scales that looked unlike anything they had seen before. He described the new scales as thin, flexible envelopes filled with viscous material that crystallizes once the moth dies. Photo courtesy of Ottmar Fischer.
