The Moon Moth is a passive Mob exclusive to Don't Starve Together and introduced in Return of Them. They spawn after a Lune Tree is chopped down, and behave much like Butterflies.

Upon death they drop one Moon Moth Wings. They can also be caught with a Bug Net, they can be planted to produce a Lune Tree sapling, and are the only method of replanting Lune Trees. When flying they emit enough light to prevent Charlie from attacking.

Unlike Butterflies, Moon Moths will starve outside of the inventory after approximately 4 minutes. Moon Moth inside the player's inventory will starve in 2 days unless fed. They can be fed with any Vegetable.

Icon Tools Usage Edit

PlaceholderTrivia Edit

  • Moon Moths were introduced in the Turn of Tides update.
  • Is possibly based on various green species of moths in the genus Actias also known as Moon or Luna Moths.
  • Characters have quotes for Lune Tree Sapling
