Lepidopteran observations


This is a collection of all lepidopterans (butterflies, moths and related groups) I have spotted. Each observation is supported with date, location, species and family ID information. When a species ID was not possible, family or genus information was provided instead. Many observations await proper identification. The observations are listed by date, from more recent to older as one descends, because lepidopterans are ubiquitous.

Some observations here were made with the aid of a home-made moth-attracting light. Click here to find out more about this device.
