Moths of the World

Moths of the World

1. Try to photograph every angle of the moth for an optimal chance at identification. 2. Post to Project Noah, and add this your spotting to this mission! 3. Help others with identification! Even an incorrect identification may lead a user in the right direction! 4. Put as much information as you can on your species: the more, the better! Some moth experts use this mission to export data, and many moth species are under documented. 5. For questions about the mission, please email me at Sign in to join mission

Moths? Yes: a world of sphinxes, hawks, owls, tigers, and scary eyes, all waiting for you outside your door, or perhaps in your home. What will you find next, a wonderful Luna Moth, or a fearsome Io Moth? All stages of moths are welcome in this quest to find some of the most unique moths known to Earth, and maybe discover something new! No moth will ever be judged as drab in this mission!! Let's get rid of the stereotype that moths are gray, drab creatures! Thanks to National Moth Week and Project Noah for a great first moth week on the week of July 23, 2012. The second National Moth Week started on July 20, 2013, and was amazing! Thanks for all the submissions, I am currently going to wait a few weeks before processing the data to give everyone a chance to upload their National Moth Week spottings!
