We made an examination using the data of higher and lower light-traps of Talcal, Rezi and Kecskemét. We made comparison between the catch and the moon phases.Our results, got from the data of Kecskemét light-trap, prove the proportion of caught samples both of fall webworm ( Hyphantria cunea Drury) and of turnip moth ( Scotia segetum Schiff.) is the most equable at the lower and higher levels at the time of full moon.The proportion of Microlepidoptera individuals (Tarcal), caught by lower and higher light-traps at Tarcal, is the highest at new moon, but it is higher at full moon than at first and last quarter and the proportion of caught species number is also similar.The proportion of Macrolepidoptera individuals (Rezi), caught by lower and higher traps is highest in the last quarter, the lowest in first quarter and at full moon. The proportion of caught species shows similar but more strikingly marked picture.
