CHIN'S NATURE CORNER ~ PHOTO GALLERY ~ MALAYSIAN MOTHS PAGE 1
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
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.

Some time ago, a visitor to my website
sent me some photos of moths that he took Thailand, asking me if I could
help him find out their names. I posted his photos in this section with a
broadcast for help with their identification. I now have a response from an expert.
(Thank you, YSH of Taiwan.) For the photos and IDs of those moth species, please
turn to Moths of Thailand.
