Steve Mason, a Curatorial Assistant at the Academy of Natural Sciences prepares moths specimens for integration into the collection through a meticulous process called spreading. The wings are drawn apart using pins and wax paper. They are then held flat in place with glass slides. When the wings, body, and antennae are in their proper places, the spreading board is placed into a cabinet to sit for almost a month to allow the parts to dry and therefore fix in place.
