Dana Ross has been working at the Oregon State Arthropod Collection for many years. His interests are in Lepidoptera - both butterflies and moths. Dana has been working on moth survey work since his graduate work, accomplished here at OSU. He is a regular consultant to numerous state agencies in relation to monitoring for a number of sensitive and/or threatened species. Dana contrutes many voucher specimens in conjunction with these surveys and has added a number of new state and county records to the state's species checklist. In addition to Lepidoptera, Dana has contributed a number of Tiger Beetles (Cicindelidae), ant lions (Myrmeleontidae) and grasshoppers.
