Catalog #5086, Moths-of-the-World-poster

This large, beautiful poster illustrates and identifies 100 species of moths. It features the same graphic design as Butterflies of the World poster, 5397, resulting in a visually striking matched set.

You may think of moths as the little brown pests that eat our clothes, but this poster clearly illustrates that moths are often spectacular. Some species are huge. The Giant Peacock Moth, Saturnia pyri, has a ten-inch wingspan.

Three-mil lamination protects the poster for permanent display. The standard size of 24 x 36" (61 x 91.5 cm) allows the poster to fit easily into a standard off-the-shelf frame.

Note: Mailing tube charge per order $1.50

Butterflies vs. moths -  The Lepidoptera order / clade contains the butterflies and moths. There are over 180,000 known species. In general, butterflies fly during the day and moths fly at night. The most obvious physical difference between them is the feelers, or antennae. Most butterflies have thin slender filamentous ones which are club-shaped at the end. Moths, on the other hand, often have comb-like or feathery antennae, or ones that are filamentous and unclubbed.
