The great majority of moths show no obvious differences between males and females, but the Ghost Moth is a notable exception. I caught the white male last night, having caught the female on almost the same date last year. I didn't post my photo of the female as it wasn't quite sharp, but here it is to show the difference from the male. To give an idea of their size, the diameter of the plastic tube in which I photograph moths is 42 mm (1.65 inches).
Photographs, or even short video clips, are particularly welcome.
We look forward to hearing from you
