All photos taken in Ogemaw Co. Michigan unless otherwise noted. All species are live and free roaming.
Many species are represented more than once, showing that moths vary in appearance at different stages of their life cycle. Lighting can also affect appearance, making identifications even more challenging. The photographs in these galleries are for documentation purposes only; the older images were taken with point/shoot cameras that suited my needs for night photography well at the time.
Species labelled with an added 'T' are tentative id's.


*Please excuse the ongoing construction; editing photos then identifying, tagging and labeling each image is quite a tedious project. For the time being, the galleries are in the family order found in 'Moths of Eastern North America' by Charles Covell Jr.
I have hundreds of images to add to the galleries in the future, and many of the photos still need to be sorted into the correct genus.*

Found your website from link from Moth Photographers Group. Learned of MPG from Ohio Lepidopterists Club monitoring workshop. One or two sessions on moths. I wanted to see who was looking at moths in Michigan. I am in the city of Detroit. I'll be paying more attention to what I see.

This is a fantastic website - what a great collection of moths and photos! I am a new "moth-er" and am so encouraged to see this wonderful resource for Michigan moths (I live in the Detroit area). Thanks for making your photos available online!
