Please check out our instagram page @ninoxedu and do participate. We came up with very interesting activities for Moth week.
Greetings Dave and Liti… Looking forward to see what people find during national Moth week
thanks Dave Moskowitz of Bug Addiction for providing wonderful food for thought and curiosity feeding in my efforts to keep what sanity I have.
I would love to teach anyone about mothing here in Central PA, but no clue how I’d promote that. I’m more of a hobbyist than a professional anyways. I have registered.
We decided to move our Moth Night Party to Lincoln Regional Park instead of our front yard. If you have any Mothing experience, or curiosity, feel free to stop by to park and visit our lights! We are not showing up on the map yet, but will definitely be set up looking for moths and recording data from 8 to 10pm.
Hi There! Any Tucson Moth Lovers are welcome to a Moth Party at our front yard in the Colonia Del Valle Neighborhood (6700 block of 20th street) youll see the set up outside. We are new at this, and this is our first moth night observation set up. This event is for our children that will be doing a small data collection and data entry project plus taking their own photos. July 20th from 8pm to 10pm. No public bathrooms, email if you are coming. Enough possible visitors might mean we serve light refreshments.
we have moved our party location to a park with public bathrooms. I cant seem to find a way to delete this notice though. We will be at Lincoln Regional Park from 8 to 10 pm
I deleted the first registration… the change will be on the map after the next update (may take up to a week). Thanks for letting me know.
I shall be mothing on my own at my farm
I saw a Jersey Tiger Moth and a hummingbird Moth about 11.45am at my location in Coulsdon next to Farthing Downs

Hi Gylma, as of now it is easier to position the marker on the map with an address. i can, and will update the coordinates on the list but please also provide and address. Thank you, Liti (any changes will be shown until the next time the map is updated which may take up to two weeks)
Hi I am Gilma Jeannette Ospino Ferreira, from Alajuela, Costa Rica. (I also have an address in California, USA) I filled the form for NMW, but I made several mistakes, and the GPS is not correct…How do I correct the Form? Thank you
Hi Gilma – you cannot correct it yourself – send me an email with the correct information and I will edit it for you. Liti
for iNaturalist new users, please see the “Getting Started” page to find out how the app works, please.
Can you upload observations to iNaturalist? Since some of us just recently participated in the City Nature Challenge event, and have not learned how to use that app?
Yes – NATIONAL MOTH WEEK’s project on iNaturalist – https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/national-moth-week
Is this just for North America?
No… it’s a global citizen science project, anywhere in the world.
Would it be possible to move the coordinates for the Seaside, OR event so that they appear at the Circle Creek Event Center for North Coast Land Conservancy? 45.95446N by 123.931545W
I’m just a person, can I try doing this myself?
yes! use the registration form for a ‘private event’.
I registered a private event 2 weeks ago for Bon Aqua, TN and do not see it showing on the map. 35.949963, -87.309145
Corrected on the map, thanks for letting us know.
Hi, I registered a public event on July 18th in Davidson, NC. The coordinates for the location are 35.458453, -80.779743, but the marker appeared at a different location. Is there any way to have that adjusted? Thank you!
thanks for letting us know. i will check the map and hopefully will able to fix the location.
Do you want records for all moths seen during this week or just the Hawkmoths?
We’re taking all records!
can observations be posted through iSpot and if not where should I send them
See a list of partner organizations you can submit to – http://nationalmothweek.org/how-to-submit-data/.
You can also submit to any other site such as iSpot.
Hi Mrinal, Darjeeling is the home of one of the most interesting primitive moths, i.e. Micropterix longicornuella, which is known from a single female only, caught in 1874! It would therefore be very interesting to publish your data (and photos?) on our website http://www.nkis.info.
I need to edit my event information. I need to add the time of the event, duh! The event will start at 7PM and run until at least midnight, if not later.
Hi Andrew… i do not see a registration from you… when did you register? Please register again with the missing information, and let me know when you do so i can check that i got it.
Darjeeling Forest are most interesting and rich with flora and fauna. Moths are also variety there. Scope of work is also very high.
My area of Moth observation is Darjeeling Forests (Singalila Nation Park), West Bengal, India. local people are not aware about the importance of Moths. can we campaign about it?
Hi Mrinal… yes, let’s teach people to appreciate and understand moths. let us know how we can help.
Thank you for the information about Micropterix longicornuella in Darjeeling. Already I have visited Darjeeling and photographed some small Moths. In this rainy season, different areas of Darjeeling are inaccessible due to landslide and road blockade. I will shoot in September also. Local people are co-operating. Some display banner with photographs are to be printed.
