Index to Moth Plates

Below are links to 16 moth plates. There are at least 2,000 - 2,500 species of moths in our area (rough estimate), possibly more. I have found more than 600 species, many of which are featured on this website. In arranging these 16 plates, I have not adhered to scientific groupings. Rather, I have attempted to combine similar-looking moths in each group. If you want to browse the moths by Hodges Number and moth families, you can click on the link at the bottom of this page for a PDF index with links to species pages. I also have a link to a chart with my entire Ohio moth life list, with notes on flight periods and species abundance.
