Moths vary greatly in size, ranging in wingspan from about 4 mm ( inch) to nearly 30 cm (about 1 foot). Highly adapted, they live in all but polar habitats.

Most macro-moths are large, and this group is technically called Macroheterocera. It contains the biggest species in the world. Because the above categories are linked to evolutionary time rather than insect size, it creates some confusion: some micros are actually quite big, while some macros can be petite.
