Friday's Zoom Talk: Moths through the Seasons with Wade Wander, 8 p.m.
Though they share the same order of Lepidoptera, moths have long played second fiddle to butterflies. But of the nearly 180,000 species in that order, fewer than 20,000 are butterflies and skippers.
The rest of the 150,000-plus species are moths. And in New Jersey, it’s estimated there are more than 1,500 species of moths compared to about 125 species of butterflies.
Join Wade Wander as he offers up a chronological look at the amazing diversity of moths that he has photographed at his moth lights at home in Sussex County.
