The Moth is found near any light in town, which includes Public Works Projects.

The Museum

The Moth can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"Moths are related to butterflies, but they're most often active at night instead of day. They use their large antenna to sense, smell, and guide themselves in the dark. Interestingly, the number of moth species is estimated at 160,000, so "moth" is a fairly broad descriptor."


Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:

"I caught a moth! It finally saw the light!"
