The World's Largest Saturniidae Site (WLSS) is a private membership site that was launched in October 2001 by Bill Oehlke. As of this date March 1, 2013, the site is still active with close to 900 worldwide Saturniidae enthusiasts as members.

The website continues to grow in its coverage of worldwide Saturniidae species, with over 1500 different Saturniidae species/subspecies now depicted on the site. I have made purchases of the best resource publications available to support the accuaracy of the site, and continue to purchase the Entomo satsphingia journals which, via DNA barcoding analysis, publish images, descriptions and data for the many new taxa.
