Chariaspilates is a monotypic moth genus in the family Geometridae erected by Eugen Wehrli in 1953. Its only species, Chariaspilates formosaria, was first described by Eduard Friedrich Eversmann in 1837, it is found in swampy areas from Europe to Japan. The wingspan is 38 -- 43 mm for 31 -- 37 mm for males. Adults are on wing in June and July. Sometimes, a second generation may occur, known as C. formosaria f. autumnalis. Adults of this generation are on wing in October; the larvae feed on Myrica gale, Lysimachia vulgaris and Caltha palustris. Larvae can be found from August to May of the following year.

Flatfoot 56

Flatfoot 56 is an American Celtic punk band from Chicago, that formed in 2000. The group's use of Scottish Highland bagpipes has led to their classification as a Celtic punk band; the band formed in summer 2000 as a three-piece punk band. The three original members, who are brothers, started writing songs in fall 2000. By the Christmas season of the same year, they were playing their first concert. In January 2001, the band added Josh Robieson to the lineup and the band began including the Highland bagpipes and a second guitar into its sound. In 2001 they recorded their first demo in Summer 2002, the band recorded their first full-length album, entitled Rumble of 56; this recording was done in Illinois, in a studio called the Noise Chamber. Their second album, Waves of War, was released in 2003, their song, "That's OK," had heavy radio play on stations across the Midwestern United States. It has been known as one of the higher-rated songs Flatfoot 56 has played and is a crowd favorite at live performances.

In 2004, Flatfoot 56 performed at the Cornerstone Festival in Illinois for a crowd of about 700 people. It was at this concert, it has been the band's best-selling record, the group continues to record and tour. The band has re-released Knuckles Up through the label, their fourth record, Jungle of the Midwest Sea, was released on May 15, 2007. After the release of their fourth album, the band embarked on tours, they appeared in festivals like Skanksgiving'08, Sonshine Festival 2008 and 2009, the Warped Tour. They are set to appear at the Sonshine Festival 2011 They appeared in the Warped Tour 2010 Tour Compilation album, recorded a song for the Swingin Utters tribute album, Untitled 21: A Juvenile Tribute to the Swingin' Utters. In January 2009, the band announced on their website that they were recording a new, full-length album. On December 18 of the same year, it was announced that they had signed to California-based Old Shoe Records for the release of their new album Black Thorn; the album was due for release St. Patricks Day 2010, but was delayed until March 30, 2010.

Upon its release, the album debuted at No. 2 on Billboard Heatseekers New Artist Chart. The first-week sales have pushed the album into the Billboard Top 200 at No. 160, as well as other Billboard charts. Flatfoot 56 has been playing a positive-natured brand of hardcore-tinged Celtic punk; the Chicago natives achieved nationwide attention with their first two label-backed records, 2006's "Knuckles Up" and 2007's "Jungle of the Midwest Sea." These releases built on a heavy dose of established regional notoriety, helping the band gain steam early on. While each record received its fair share of acclaim, the quintet exploded onto a new level with 2010's "Black Thorn." Landing the band on a total of nine different Billboard Charts, Flatfoot 56 proved it could reach an expanding audience while treading in a genre not associated with widespread success. Old Shoe Records released a compilation called WELCOME TO THE FAMILY VOL.4 - A FREE PUNK COMPILATION CD that featured the Flatfoot 56 song "Born for This".

The video for their 2010 single "Courage" was nominated for a 2010 Chicago/Midwest Emmy Award for'Best Director.' In 2010 the Flatfoot 56 songs "Shiny Eyes", "Son of Shame", "We Grow Stronger" were featured in episodes 7, 8 and 9 of season 3 of the TV series Sons of Anarchy. While not touring and playing with Flatfoot 56, Kyle Bawinkel sings for the hardcore side project Sexually Frustrated. Flatfoot 56 performed two tracks for WWE: Johnny Curtis's theme, "I Told You So" as well as a version of Irish-born WWE wrestler Sheamus's theme, "Written In My Face". Paper+Plastic Records announced in October 2011 that they would back the band's next full-length recording; the band will enter Matt Allison's Chicago-based Atlas Studios in January to record its first release for Paper + Plastick Records. “We have always respected Paper + Plastick’s independent approach to putting out records because they always seem to promote the creative side of the album,” Bawinkel said. “As a band we all value that creative vision, Paper + Plastick is the place to be for that.”

Like "Black Thorn," Flatfoot 56's Paper + Plastick debut will be produced by the Street DogsJohnny Rioux. “We decided that since the last experience with Johnny was so beneficial, we wanted to repeat it,” Bawinkel said. “We have been friends with Johnny for years our mutual respect fosters a good creative environment for putting together a record. He knows how to challenge us and push us the next level, what any band hopes for.” While the record is set to be more rootsy and folk-oriented, it promises to pack the same relentless, knock-down punch that fans have grown to expect from Flatfoot 56. More than a decade into its career, Flatfoot 56 isn't slowing down, but maintaining a blistering pace of touring and musical output. “The next record’s sound is taking on a much more mature, heartfelt tone,” Bawinkel said. “We’re writing these songs as life gets thrown at us, as we all get a bit older and start to interpret life in different ways, we want to express ourselves to reflect the victories and defeats that we all go through.

We still love whipping the crowd into a frenzy and making everybody dance but we want to write some tunes that people can relate to, that they can sing along to.”In January 2012, Flatfoot 56 announced the finish of the recording stage of its still-untitled new album. The Celtic punk group recorded with Johnny Rioux. Flatfoot 56's new record is slated for a summer release

Road (album)

Road is the debut self-titled studio album by American hard rock group Road. Released in 1972, it was the only album to be released by the band; the song "My Friends" was recorded by bassist Noel Redding's previous band, Fat Mattress, but went unreleased at the time, making the Road version the first published recording of the song. In a review for allmusic, critic Sean Westergaard criticised the performances of each musician, as well as the songwriting and production quality, summarized the album as "little more than warmed-up post-Hendrix hard rock, heavy on the wah pedal."
