MOTHS are generally dull coloured and fly at night,
and are seldom noticed. But there are moths which
are colourful, like the spectacular Atlas Moth
above, and moths which are diurnal in habit. This
section of the Picture Gallery displays some moths
that I have encountered while out looking for
butterflies. They were photographed in a by-the-way
manner only when I happened to see them. Butterflies
are still my main interest as photography subjects.
While I have many reference books on Malaysian
butterflies, my resources on moths are rather
limited. If you can identify the species shown here,
particularly those at the bottom of the page, I
would be happy if you will kindly let me know the
name of the species, or email me if I've got the
identification or facts wrong.
Please click on either the thumbnail image or
the name of the species to see a bigger picture of
the moth (or larva, in some cases). The picture
opens in a new window. You can navigate to a
limited extent within that window. After viewing it,
close that window to return to this page.
