Day-flying moths identification

How many day-flying moths can you identify?

Lots of day-flying moths are brightly coloured and look a bit like butterflies. Use our ID sheet to help you identify them.

  • Moths hold their wings flat when they’re resting
  • They usually have thin, comb-like or feathery antennae
  • Moths often have fat, furry bodies

Now you can tell the difference between a day-flying moth and a butterfly, get outside and ID them!
