Moth pollination at night: how much do they do?

I set up my portable ring camera on a plum branch to test pollination. No bees all day long. But at night I saw moths visiting the flowers. How much of pollination of cherry, apricot, peach, plum, and apple is actually from moths at night?

I believe recent research has found they are much more important than previously thought.


Can you post an image of these night-moths?


That’s the article I saw!

Not easy! The video was so bright the flowers and moths all whited out. Only the video showed it was a moth by it flight, shape, snd antennae. A still image would not show much.
