Thousands of moth species exist in the northeast of North America, and while all seem to be dull grays and browns, there's actually a startling variety.
In a rainbow of colors, from brilliant oranges and pinks to soft greens and violets, some wear colorful leopard-like spots, while others appear more like B-movie aliens!

With helpful tips on how to attract and identify moths, range maps and season graphs showing at a glance when and where to find each species, and clear photographs that use the unique Peterson arrow system for easy identification, this guide provides everything an amateur or experienced moth-watcher needs.
