Moths of North Carolina

I enjoy catching, photographing, and releasing moths that I find mostly at my home in Asheville, NC.

I'm an amateur moth enthusiast and a citizen scientist. This page shouldn't be used for scientific research as my identifications could quite possibly be incorrect but, they might be a good place to start if you are wondering what that moth is you found.
