Agathiphaga is a genus of insects in the order Lepidoptera. This caddis fly-like lineage of primitive "Kauri moths" was first reported by Lionel Jack Dumbleton in 1952, as a new genus of Micropterigidae. He described two species, one occurring in Queensland, Eastern Australia[1] and the other distributed from Fiji to Vanuatu and Solomon Islands. The caterpillars feed only on Agathis (Araucariaceae) and are currently considered the second most primitive living lineage of moths after Micropterigoidea (Kristensen, 1999: 41-44). Remarkably, the larva has been reported to be able to survive for 12 years in diapause (Upton, 1997), durability possibly a prerequisite to its possible dispersion around the Pacific islands in the seeds of Agathis.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
