BugGuide is proud to be a National Moth Week Partner. 2021 marks the 10th year of National Moth Week.

To add images of insects taken during National Moth Week, upload them to BugGuide like normal but put "nationalmothweek" in the Remarks or Identifier field.

Images don't have to be of moths; you may find something else interesting coming to your lights!

All images with "nationalmothweek" in the Remarks or Identifier field will show as search results, linked below. Note that new submissions will not appear immediately in search results but will eventually as the search function picks them up.

Show us your mothing setup!

Images of people, places, and non-bugs do not need this "nationalmothweek" tag identifier since they will all be posted directly to Images tab of the page you are currently reading. To add a picture of National Moth Week 2021 fun and activity, go to the Images tab and then click "add image".
