Charming moths are a Hunter creature that can be caught barehanded with level 88 Hunter and 83 Agility. They are found on the eastern coast of the Wilderness, near Daemonheim. Players can receive gold, green, crimson, and blue charms from catching them, as well as a rare chance of obtaining crystal triskelion fragments. Unlike other butterflies, these cannot be put into butterfly jars after being caught.

665 Hunter experience and 125 Agility experience is received per catch with 20% additional Hunter and Agility experience can be earned if a demonic skull is equipped whilst hunting them. Temporary skill boosts can be used to catch these moths. With all available boosts, including volcanic trapper outfit, enhanced yaktwee stick, ring of metamorphosis, decorated hunter urns, arctic bear familiar and extreme hunter potion, a player can gain around 900,000 Hunter experience and 130,000 Agility experience per hour, along with around 860 charms. From levels 90 to 95, around 55 urns and 3 rings will be used per hour. Between levels 96 and 99, one can expect to use 60 urns and 4 rings every hour. The wolpertinger familiar is also a good option, as it lasts 1 hour, and gives a +5 hunter boost (arctic bears only last 27 minutes).

Catching one of these moths completes the Harming Moths achievement which is one of elite Wilderness achievements, although players cannot boost to the required level to complete this achievement.

Following the release of the Land out of Time on 8 July 2019, Charming moths can be caught multiple times before fleeing, awarding a charm and experience for each successful catch.
