Help with identifying moths of the Eastern United States

Guest blog by Ken Childs, NMW team member

I’ve been mothing in western Tennessee for 15 years and during that time, I’ve amassed thousands of photos of the species that can be found here. The best of these are posted to my Lepidoptera albums on flickr. There are more than 1,600 species of moths represented in these albums so if you’re located in the eastern half of the United States, these albums should help with moth identification. Please don’t let all my years of work go to waste. Use and share these albums!
