It’s a lepidopterist! Run!

Is it just me, or is the appearance of a butterfly and/or moth collector in a story always a bad sign? They’re often the villain (as in The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Silence of the Lambs, or the second half of Tuesday’s Brit Noir double bill, The Clouded Yellow), but even when they aren’t (and off the top of my head, the only case I can think of is Angels and Insects) they serve as a bellwether for crime or general creepiness.
