moth entomologist in one of V's novels
Dear Nabokovians,

Please help me remember in which novel the narrator mentions having a
chat with an entomologist interested in moths. I believe they met at
night, outside a motel where there was a porch light on attracting
moths. I may be misremembering these details.

Thanks for your help.

Yours lazily,

Tori Alexander
