The amazing world of nocturnal butterflies

They gather wherever there is light amidst the nighttime darkness with their peculiarly shaped wings, striking patterns, impressive antennae and fabulous colors: moths large and small. Armin Dett has been documenting a unique and enthralling diversity from the Costa Rican lowland rainforest by capturing and photographing them alive before setting them free. Through written contributions, renowned specialists offer further insights into these fascinating and often-neglected nocturnal creatures that are nevertheless so vital for our global ecosystem.

Many of the 450 species are presented for the first time in this lavishly illustrated collection of moths. It pays homage to a beautiful side of nature that comes to life only in the darkness of night.


Armin Dett

Armin Dett, born in Albstadt Tailfingen in 1966, spends his time on his own private research projects such as the photographic study of moths in southwest Costa Rica.
