The preliminary results of the comparative analysis of the vertical distribution within the Noctuoid moths of the central parts of the mountain ridges Kirgizsky, Dzhumgaltoo and Fergansky are presented. Within all three ridges 346 species of Noctuoid moths were detected: 246 species in Kirgizsky Mts., 210 species in Dzhumgaltoo Mts. and 164 species in Fergansky Mts. The vertical distribution as follows: lowlands of Kirgizsky Mts. 134 species, Dzhumgaltoo Mts. 85 species, Fergansky Mts. 93 species; middle mountains of Kirgizsky Mts 114 species, Dzhumgaltoo Mts. 191 species, Fergansky Mts. 125 species; highlands of Kirgizsky Mts. 52 species, Dzhumgaltoo Mts. 96 species, Fergansky Mts. 50 species; superhighlands of Kirgizsky Mts. 9 species, Dzhumgaltoo Mts. 17 species, Fergansky Mts. 12 species. These faunas not in general nor by the vertical zones are unsimilar, except the lowlands of the Fergansky and Dzhumgaltoo Mts. The arealogical structure of studied fauna comprises 8 types of areas within 2 complexes of areas. As higher located the vertical zone, as lower in it is the amount of species with wide area types; the same is about the fauna’s core.
