Index to Moth Plates

Below are the links to 16 moth plates. There are approximately 2,000 - 2,500 species of moths in our area (rough estimate - no one really knows for sure). I have found more than 550 species so far, 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. This arrangement is intended to alert readers to the existence of "look-alike" species, which might or might not belong to the same family. If you are looking for a particular species, you may want to consult my life list arranged by Hodges Numbers (see below).
