Moths

A gallery of my moth photos organized by taxonomic group. As of March 24, 2020, it consists of 791 photos of 435 species in 34 families. Since the previous update in 2017, 159 new photos, 55 new species, and 1 new family have been added. In addition, some of the old photos have been replaced with better ones. 79% of the species (344) were photographed in my not very mothy suburban townhouse yard near Rochester, NY. The taxonomy used is that of BugGuide.net.
