Summary: This contribution particularly deals with an entomological expedition, which was carried out to the northern and central Moluccas, Indonesia by the authors in the year 1995. During the monsoon, blowing from the east or northeast in the Moluccas, the islands of Sanana, Sula Archipelago and Ambon were visited to study the life-histories of wild silkmoths (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae). On the island of Ambon adults of the genera Antheraea Hübner, 1819 ("1816"), Attacus Linnaeus, 1767 and Syntherata Maassen, 1873 approached to lighttraps, while on the island of Sanana adults of the genera Attacus and Samia Hübner, 1819 ("1816") approached. Furthermore a single empty cocoon of a Cricula Walker, 1855 species was found and a female of Antheraea was observed at the light on the island of Sanana. Prior to proposed thorough studies and further detailed publications on the wild silkmoths of the Moluccas, the authors intend to give some general notes on the Moluccas and its fauna and flora.
