The Arkansas Lepidoptera Survey received the collection records for specimens J R Heitzman and his associates collected in Arkansas between 1960 and 1973, mainly in Arkansas’ Washington, Carroll and Madison Counties. These collection records include data representing 4410 specimens, 160 being new state records.  The associated specimens were gifted to the McGuire Center, Gainesville, Fla, as part of a gift in excess of 32,000 specimens collected in Arkansas, Missouri and Kentucky. Mr. Heitzman was a lifelong collector and student of butterflies and moths in Missouri and surrounding states. He published many scientific papers, identified several new species, had others described in his honor and donated literally thousands of specimens to colleges, museums and individuals during his lifetime. Mr. Phillip E. Koenig, a longtime friend and associate of Mr. Heitzman, has been transcribing Mr. Heitzman’s hand written data cards into a searchable electronic data base.  Currently that data base contains the collection data for over 205,000 specimens. Phillip states there are many more to be transcribed, primarily micro-lepidoptera.  Mr. Heitzman died on 17 May 2013, at age 82.
