Fraser’s Hill, a hill resort in Peninsular Malaysia, has long been recognised as an excellent destination for bird watchers and photographers alike. However, a lesser-known fact is that these highlands are great for moth watching as well. For as long as the surrounding forests remain pristine and protected, the birds, moths and other wildlife will continue to thrive. As most moths are nocturnal, they tend to fly by night. In doing so, some will be consumed by insectivorous bats, as well as owls, nightjars and frogmouths. In the mornings, certain insectivorous birds may have them for breakfast.
For over a decade, the authors made multiple visits to Fraser’s Hill to enjoy the ambience and photograph the flora and fauna. Particularly mesmerised by the moth diversity, they felt compelled to compile and identify their moth images, which eventually resulted in the publication of this book. In total, more than 600 moth species across 18 families are featured. Through this publication, they hope to encourage a greater appreciation for moths.
