This dataset consists of 200 moth species common in Central Europe. Each of the species is represented by roughly 11 images. In total, there are 2205 images.
Class labels and validation splits
For the experiments in our paper “Moth Detection and Classification”, we split the dataset in four splits (552 images in the first split and 551 in the other three). We used the first split for the evaluation and the other three for training of the classifier.
Bounding box annotations
Additionally to the class labels, we manually annotated* bounding boxes around the single insects.
