Curators Choice – Magnificent Moths

Catherine Knight, Collections Assistant Archaeology, showcases the moths in the North Lincolnshire Museums collection.

“I picked these because I really like the moths in the collection, they’re a very interesting collection of objects, I suppose. We don’t get to put out them on display very often because they’re quite fragile, so I wanted to show you some of what we’re got tucked away in the store.

They’ve got a bit of an unfair reputation as being small brown, boring creatures that only come out at night so I’d like to show you some of the more spectacular species we’ve got in the collection.”
