MOTH species list ( amended, 27 February 2011 )
The moth species list below was compiled by Adrian Hoskins, Peter Bruce Jones and Tony Hoare. It represents perhaps 10% of the total number of species which were attracted to our MV lamp, which was set up for 3 consecutive nights in early June, on a vertical white sheet in a rainforest glade near Satipo ( altitude 700m ). It also includes a number of diurnal moths attracted to mineralised moisture on the sandbanks of the Rio Shima, or to flowering Eupatorium at the nearby village of Mariposas. We are only listing here those species which have been identified with a high degree of confidence after several months of research, museum visits and consultations with neotropical moth specialists. Numerous additional species were observed and photographed, but have so far proven impossible to identify.
