A moth is an insect closely related to the butterfly. Both are of the order Lepidoptera. People who study or collect these insects are called lepidopterists. Most species of moths are nocturnal, but there are crepuscular and day-flying species. They can be distinguished from butterflies in several ways.

Some moths are leaf miners. Moths are apparently attracted to light, or more specifically, are known to circle bright objects. The reason for this behaviour is not known. It may be moths navigate by maitaining a constant angular relationship to a bright celestial light (such as the moon), but on encountering a bright artifical light it navigates maintaining a constant angle to the light resulting in the moth flying in a spiral until it hits the light source.
