Recommended Moth Books

The new Peterson moth book is finally out -- and it's fantastic! If you would like to help support this web site, please click on the images below to buy through Amazon.

Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America
by David Beadle and Seabrooke Leckie (2012)

This new guide is a must-buy for moth fanatics (mothers, for short) in the Carolinas. Though the region covered is the northeastern US and Canada, this is still a great guide for us, particularly the Mountain region. I've been using it like mad to put names on a lot of my unknowns, but still have many to go!

Owlet Caterpillars of Eastern North America
by David L. Wagner, Dale F. Schweitzer, J. Bolling Sullivan, and Richard C. Reardon (2011)

A spectacular, huge new guide for those who crave bigger photos and more details on the the Noctuidae, one of the largest moth families. Covers 800 species using 2100 color photographs.

Caterpillars of Eastern North America: A Guide to Identification and Natural History
by David L. Wagner (2005)

A photographic guide to caterpillars of moths as well as butterflies. A fantastic resource -- highly recommended.

A big thanks to Bob Patterson, Hugh McGuinness, Merrill Lynch, and other members of the TILS-Moth-rah group for identifying a number of these! Read more about Merrill Lynch's passion for moths.
