In this study were collected the adult individuals of species that belong on the family Geometridae (Moths) - group of Lepidoptera in ten localities of Sharr Mountain, the part which belongs to the Republic of North Macedonia. Our research has lasted two-years (2019-2020) from April to November. Compared to the literature review and with the results of this study this family of moths is counted as the family with high species richness from other groups of Heteroceras. The material was collected during the night period in several localities in Sharr Mountain, by light-traps (pyramids with white sheets, equipped with UV lamp). The collected material was narcotized and systematized in plastic boxes lined with cotton or soft material to avoid damage or destroy of the individuals because then we will have a lot of difficulties in morphological determination. The collected material was transported to the laboratory of the Institute of Ecology and Technology in Sharr Mountain, for preparation and morphological determination. In this period of field observation were collected 101 adult individuals and in laboratory we identified (with stereo microscope Nikon SMZ 1500) 48 species of Geometridae moths belonging to 21 genera and 9 subfamilies.
