FAUNA Paraguay Gallery of Moth Images
This gallery is something of a work in progress and we continue to search for experts who can assist us with the identification of the images in some of the familial galleries (obviously we are aware that identification to species level is not always possible from a photograph!). If you feel that you can help us please contact us! We always fully credit contributors for their input.
