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 some moths which are colourful, like the spectacular
Atlas Moth (Attacus atlas)
shown here, and moths which are diurnal in habit.
This section of the Photo Gallery displays some of the 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 subjects.
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 a thumbnail image below to see a bigger
picture of the moth (or larva, in some cases). The picture opens in a new window.
You can go on to view the NEXT photo within that window.
After viewing, close that window to return to the main page.
