HK Moths

This is a gallery to help people with identification - it is certainly not a collection of aesthetically pleasing images. Corrections to IDs are very welcome. Many moths have kindly been identified for me by Roger Kendrick. All the mistakes, as they say, are my own. All these moths have been photographed at or near my home in the Sai Kung area of Hong Kong
