Poodle Moth There isn’t much information on the poodle moth. We know that it is possibly a fairly new species of moth discovered in 2009 by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. He found it in the Gran Sabana region of Venezuela. It bears similarities to the Muslin Moth, but is not classified the same. We also know that is it scary looking and that I will not be making any trips to Venezuela anytime soon.
