Each variety is introduced with its common and scientific name, wingspan, range of activity, habits and habitat, food supply, and sexual characteristics. An introduction describes the life cycle of the moth, from ovum through larva and pupa to imago. Michael Dickens also tells how to raise moths in captivity, explains the structure and senses of moths, and comments on their conservation. Moths appearing here are from various parts of the world.
