There are several series of plates showing photos of moths to aid you in their identification. They are listed below in the phylogenetic sequence system adopted in the Pohl et al. 2016 Check List, with links on the left to the plates for pinned or museum specimens, and links on the right to two comparable series for living moths. All of the plates in the several series have colored buttons as shown above. These permit you to select Large, Medium or Small page sizes to suit your Internet access or modem speed. For example, the Small page of Collection Specimens will contain 8 rows, each with 6 photographs. Medium pages will display 16 rows while Large pages will contain 32 rows. Once you have a page to view in your browser you will have other navigating choices.
Each page has at the bottom a series of navigation buttons similar to those shown here. Each numbered plate represents a family or subfamily, and it may have up to several hundred species/photos. If you hold your cursor over the Last Plate or Next Plate buttons you will see the name of the group you will visit by clicking on that button. The smaller numbered buttons beneath them lead forward or backward through the several pages for the family/subfamily that you selected. Be sure to use these buttons if you wish to continue browsing through the group.
The phylogenetic sequence plate series is new with some known issues that were are currently working out. Please help us to improve it by sending comments/suggestions to MPG Webmaster.
