I will discuss a class of limiting points in the moduli space of d=2 (2,2) superconformal field theories.  These SCFTs arise as IR limits of "hybrid" UV theories constructed as a fibration of a Landau-Ginzburg theory over a base Kaehler geometry.  A significant generalization of Landau-Ginzburg and large radius geometric limit points, the hybrid theories can be used to probe general features of (2,2) and (0,2) SCFT moduli spaces.
