Moths in the underpass

Somehow I didn’t expect finding that many different moths in the underpass of a suburb of Zurich, Switzerland. I saw a few last summer and fall but really started to realize how many there were this spring.

In April it started with three, in May seven more and another eight in June and so far in July another seven. In total there were 23 different moths and a lot of them lifers for me (=I have never seen them before). Thanks to the incredible AI and the real people in the iNaturalist-Community all but three of them are identified to the species level.

You can see the whole list with photos on iNaturalist. Here are some of there rarer ones and some of the beauties :
