Excerpt: Historical Perspective Since at least the 18th century naturalists have been aware that males of many insects could discover the females at considerable distances, even when the females were placed in concealment. Upon this principle of sembling, London aurelians took females of day-flying moths in a box with a gauze lid into the vicinity of the woods, where, if the weather be favourable, she never fails to attract a numerous train of males, whose only business appears to be an incessant, rapid undulating flight in search of the females. One of these is no sooner descried, than they become so much enamoured of their fair kinswoman, as absolutely to lose all fear for their own personal safety (1).
