A hasty survey to assess diversity of moths has been conducted at Ahmednagar College campus. A total of 34 species of moths belonging to 07 families and 15 subfamilies have been presented in this report. Of the total specimens, 26 moths were identified at specific level and remaining were given morpho-species label. Family Erebidae and Geometridae dominated in the study area, followed by Sphingidae, Noctuidae, Crambidae, Eupterotidae, and minimum number of species were noted from family Notodontidae. The present work is a minor investigation, but it may serve to contribute to the database for generating larger regional inventory on moth diversity.
