Abstract: The Mass Moths Project was initially set up to prepare a list of the moth species known to have been found in the State. This in turn resulted from a 2-year inventory of the moths of a Wildlife Sanctuary in Plymouth County, MA by the presenter during 2014-2015 and his inability to find enough information in the public domain to adequately assess the quality of the moth fauna at the site. The project then developed into a full-blown project to centralize all known moth records from the State into a single curated database and a website ( to present the summarized data. The database currently holds >207,000 records for 2,904 species.
