Moths play an important role in the natural ecosystem as pollinators and as food in the food chain. The tropical location and once extensive areas of rainforest in the Philippines resulted in high moth species diversity and very high level of endemism. Many moth species are yet to be described. Help us document moths in the Philippines by submitting your photos of moths taken in the Philippines and adding descriptive notes. * Data gathered from this mission are shared at Philippine Lepidoptera (PhiLep) community and are part of PhiLep's database of butterflies and moths in the Philippines.
