The Moth in a Jar is a unique miscellaneous item item in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that contains a live luna moth. There are other types of jars like this that can be found, each type containing a different type of insect that can be found throughout Skyrim.


In Duskglow Crevice, on the end table near a clothes iron at the end of the map, specifically in the final room on the West.


There is an inscription on the inside of all of the insect jars. The markings are diagrams of the insects contained in the jars. The markings on the lid read "M" and then "+." The "M" represents the wings of the moth and the "+" the head of the moth.



  • The Moth in a Jar, the Torchbug in a Jar and the Butterfly in a Jar are the only insect-containing jars that respawn.
  • This is the only one of the five bugs in a jar that has no sale value.
