Animal Species:Online resources for Australian Lepidoptera (Moths and Butterflies)

Moths and butterflies are one of the few insect groups where external habitus is important for general identification. Because of this, their aesthetic appeal and general ecological and economic importance there are a number of webpages that are useful for identification and other information.

Note: Links may become out of date - use Google or other web search facilities to locate them if necessary.
