Since 2010 I’ve been observing and learning about the moths we have here at the farm.  This is the list of all the moths I’ve seen here, that I’ve been able to identify.

The photos are mine, and were all taken here, on our land in Buffalo County, Wisconsin.

I’ve had a lot of help with identifications – from Les Ferge and Kyle Johnson, from the wonderful folks at Bugguide, Moth Photographers Group, and from the Facebook Groups: Mothing and Moth-watching, and Moths of the Eastern United States and Canada.  I’ve tried to identify the moths correctly, but I’m sure I’ve made mistakes.  If you find any, please let me know.

I’ve organized these pages first by family.  Each photo below is a link to a page of the moths I’ve seen in that family.  The photos on the family pages are each linked to a page with more photos and information on that species.
