George T. Austin [1943-2009]
Lepidopterology lost one of its giants

George T. Austin, prominent Lepidopterist and Scientific Advisor to Butterflies of America, passed away on June 30, 2009, in Gainesville, Florida. Among Lepidopterists, George is best known for his work on western North American butterflies, where he described dozens of subspecies, as well as his work on all Neotropical butterfly families, especially the skippers (Hesperiidae) and Calephelis (Riodinidae). We have assembled a partial list of George’s publications on Lepidoptera, along with some images of a few of the new species George and his collaborators described. George was one of the most prolific publishing Lepidopterists, and the impact of his loss will be felt for many years to come.

George was helping organize specimens for photography for the Butterflies of America website.
All the drawers stacked around them were pulled by George to remove selected specimens for photography.
George did not like to have his photo taken and is seen here trying to avoid the camera.

George began his career as an ornithologist. He is seen here birding with a friend,
his sister Amalie Austin Aseltine, and George and Amalie's mother Anna T. Austin (far right).
The scope mount he's using in the photo was his own creation and he said it worked very well.
