Nocturnal moths were sampled on 20 plots during three periods between 1999 and 2000 using light traps equipped with two backlight 15 W tubes operated between 18:30 and 21:30 local time (UTC-5:00). Catches were restricted to periods from three days after full moon until five days before full moon. Specimens were sorted to morphospecies within pyraloid moths (Pyraloidea). Data originates from PHD thesis of Dirk Süßenbach. He is the main author of the dataset. Süßenbach, D. (2003): Diversität von Nachtfaltergemeinschaften entlang eines Höhengradienten in Südecuador (Lepidoptera: Pyraloidea, Arctiidae). PHD-Thesis, available online at
