Dear Members,

Since many people can't go outside due to travelling restrictions

⁕ You can upload your past observations too, for this contest.

⁕ But remember if you already uploaded a moth observation to iNat, you can't reupload them!
Duplicate observations will not be counted.

⁕ Observations uploaded within the time period of Moth Week will only be counted.

⁕ all observations should be attached with one or more photograph

⁕ Observations of Moth caterpillars will also be counted!

Stay Safe!!! Happy MOTHing!!!! 📸🐛🦋
