Help build a photographic moth id database
Now featuring over 2,300 species - 2,000 named.
The aim of this site is to encourage the
identification and recording of moths throughout
the African continent.
There are many thousands of species to be found and identification is very difficult with few reference works available, and trawling through museum collections the only practical way to identify most specimens.
At African moths we hope to publish as many photographs of live and set specimens as possible, with or without identification, so that as comprehensible a data base as possible can be assembled.

My web site largely follows the classification system used by www.afromoths.net a most excellent source of information and source material about African species.
