CELEBRATING MOTH WEEK - July 20th-28th, 2013

Representatives of the major moth families/subfamilies of Yunnan, China

Family NOLIDAE

(Tuft Moths)


See more about Moth Week HERE…..

Nolidae is a family of moths with about 1,400 described species worldwide. They are generally described as mostly small with dull colouration, the main distinguishing feature being tufts of raised scales on the forewings (the group is sometimes known as tuft moths), but the local Yunnan representatives are very diverse and strikingly colourful, as you can see.
