Moth. The popular name of a numerous and beautiful division of lepidopterous insects, readily distinguished from butterflies by their antennae tapering to a point instead of terminating in a knob, by their wings being horizontal when resting, and by their being seldom seen on the wing except in the evening or at night (though some moths fly by day); hence the terms crepuscular and nocturnal lepidoptera applied to them. Among the more notable of the moths are the "feather or plume moths," the "death's-head moth," the "clothes moths," and the "silk moth."



“Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
Joshua 1:8
