Moths? Yes: a world of sphinxes, hawks, owls, tigers, and scary eyes, all waiting for you outside your door. National Moth Week 2014 data is being processed. In order for the best chances of identification, please provide: Sharp images of dorsal and ventral views (dorsal = right side up; ventral = upside down), when possible. Pictures of the head (the projections that resemble horns are called labial palps and can often be the key to family identification). A description of the approximate or exact size of the moth (wingspan, etc.).
