The wonderful world of Butterflies and Moths is one of vibrant designs and discovery.

Both belong to the order Lepidoptera and are represented by over 165,000 species globally with, rather surprisingly, Moths making up the greater portion of this total. Skippers (family Hesperiidae) are closely related to Butterflies. This resource has been arranged to quickly and easily identify the various butterfly and moth species common to North America.
