The Association for Tropical Lepidoptera newsletter, LEPIDOPTERA NEWS, was published quarterly, from 1987 through 2003,  and was sent to all active members of ATL (formerly titled Tropical Lepidoptera News). The newsletter provided up-to-date information about ATL news and activities, and other information of interest to members. Regular subjects included new books, events, activities, members in the news, etc. An annual feature, begun in 1994, was a yearly summary of new literature on Lepidoptera.
