About this app

PNW Moths is an interactive identification key to the more than 1,200 moth species featured on the Pacific Northwest Moths website (pnwmoths.biol.wwu.edu). Designed for people with no prior knowledge of moth identification, the key narrows the list of possible species in response to responses users give to easy-to-understand questions about seasonality, location, size, and color patterns.

PNW Moths has photos of all of the species known from the region in the families Drepanidae, Uraniidae, Lasiocampidae, Saturniidae, Sphingidae, Notodontidae, Erebidae, Euteliidae, Nolidae, and Noctuidae, and is updated regularly in response to new discoveries.

PNW Moths allows users to record information and photos from moth observations to their mobile device and upload their observations to the PNW Moths app server, making it a terrific resource for students, educators, naturalists, and anyone else interested in identifying moths in this region.

Available only for Android.

I was SO EXCITED to see there was a region specific app for lepidoptera, but the identification feature isn't working properly. I'm able to select all the options available, but the results don't show up and are unclickable.

The app doesn't appear to work. I can take a picture but the search shows a bunch of blank data. I don't see any other functionality to manually scan characteristics or anything else either. Too bad.

This app is coded wrong or something, the menus overlap or disappear completely. Most buttons don't work and you have to zoom in and out to see anything. I should never have to zoom in or out to access an apps basic functions
