Bird-Dropping Tortrix Moths of the British Isles: A Field Guide to the Bird-dropping Mimics
Many species of moth have evolved black and white markings which give them the appearance of bird droppings and provide camouflage. This guide shows classic examples of bird-dropping mimics, such as the Apotomis, Hedya and Epinotia and some of the cryptic black and white cochylids. The moths are shown in their resting position, alongside a set specimen, with a brief account giving distinguishing features and use of coloured pointers to highlight the critical areas in a user friendly way. Maps show Vice-county distribution across the British Isles, alongside seasonal flight graphs and life size representations of each species, to aid identification.
