Philippine Lepidoptera’s (PhiLep) call to its members at their Facebook group page to post their moth finds for the week long National Moth Week celebration was a huge success! Moth photos from all over the Philippines were shared and appreciated. With the help of Dr. Roger Kendrick who gladly provided information and IDs, moth finds were properly documented.
Moth turnout was huge and elicited admiration from members of the group. Several hawk moths were shared. From the gorgeous Oleander Hawk Moth from the plains to the funny looking Death’s Head Hawk Moth from the highlands! It was indeed exciting!
Other finds are the lace-like Geometer moth from Quezon Province, the exotic looking Agaristine moth from Isabela Province, the cute Arctiid moth from Baguio City and Philippine Moon Moth (Actias philippinica) from Baguio City.
Photos of moths shared at Philippine Lepidoptera FB group were also entered at Project Noah under the account of Philippine Lepidoptera and Project Noah Moths of the Philippines.
