Moths, along with butterflies, belong to the insect order Lepidoptera, which translates into “scaly wing”. With over 160,000 described species of moths and many more waiting to be discovered, moths are a large segment of the insect kingdom and outnumber butterfly species by 10 to 1. Moths also evolved long before butterflies, with fossils over 180 million years old. This framed moth collection features one of the most beautiful moths (Framed Sunset Moth), the largest (Framed Atlas Moth) the Moth from Silence of the Lambs., and a specimen with clear wings.
