What about[edit]

what about Tineola bisselliella, that moth that likes to eat your clothes (name taken from german Wikipedia, de:Kleidermotte)? --Abdull 30 June 2005 21:59 (UTC)

Need to improve this article[edit]

This article represents a small but brave step to list the moths of the world, which have an estimated 150,000 species described less the approximately 17,500 butterfly species [1].

It needs major attention and is potentially the seed of Taxonomy of Moths in the making. A very important article for Wikipedia:WikiProject Lepidoptera.

does anyone know anything about the moth the lives in the amazon wich drinks from your eyes while yo sleep??

That would be various Calpinae, probably of tribe Calpini. See also Calyptra and Hemiceratoides hieroglyphica, which do much the same and occur elsewhere. Dysmorodrepanis (talk) 12:03, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Is the "Legume Pedobear" some kind of a joke? (talk) 16:02, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

I propose to delete this gigantically incomplete list. Ruigeroeland (talk) 11:15, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
Bump. There is no reason to have this list. There are so many moth species, the mere idea to include them all in a list is just insane. Ruigeroeland (talk) 11:03, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
