African Moths Gambia


Help build a photographic moth id database

Now featuring over 4,500 species - 3,500 named.

The aim of this site is to encourage the
identification and recording of moths throughout
the African continent.

At African moths we hope to publish as many photographs of live and set specimens as possible, with or without identification, so that as comprehensible a data base as possible can be assembled.

African Moths is now based in the UK.
