A total of 696 species ofLepidoptera is reported from the Mud Lake State Nature Preserve, Williams County, Ohio. This preserve is only a few miles from both the Indiana and Michigan state borders. The great biodiversity of moths is reflected in the bog, fen, shrub swamp, and marsh communities bordering the lake. A check list of species summarizes identified collections for 1988,1992,1995 and 1996 and includes the Hodges et al (1983) species numbers, the scientific name, and the numbers collected by different collecting methods. The list does not fully represent the Tineoidea and Gtllechioidea lepidopteran superfamilies. Melanchra assimilis is a new State record.
