Owlet Moths

I was reading a short snippet by Audubon Magazine's Editor-at-Large Ted Williams in the Jan-Feb 2012 issue of Audubon magazine about owlet moths and in it was listed some really cool names given to the different species of this moth, which is found worldwide and consists of 35,000 known species. Click on each name to view each one.
