National Moth Week 2021Welcome to Moths of India, an internet-based and peer-reviewed resource devoted to Indian moths. It is a sister of the Butterflies of India, Cicadas of India, Odonata of India, Reptiles of India, Amphibians of India and Birds of India websites. Like those websites, it is designed to disseminate comprehensive information on various aspects of the natural history and biology of Indian moths, encourage their observation to study their natural history and ecology, gather population and distributional data in a centralized database, and spread awareness about their conservation.

This website includes photographic records, distributional data, and natural history information under various tabs of the species pages. It encourages "citizen science", where ordinary citizens participate in gathering scientific data and building this free resource on Indian moths. So get involved! You can contribute moth pictures or spot records, write species pages, contribute other articles, or just spread the word.

If you spot any errors or face issues with the website user interface, please contact the site editors.
