About this book

This 8-page chart shows 103 species of day-flying macro-moths, including a few very common species that are not strictly day-flying but are regularly disturbed from vegetation by day. Paintings show the adult moths at life size (a small number are at x1.25) and in their natural resting postures, rather than as dead cabinet specimens with their wings folded out in the style of many other field guides. The text, arranged by family but with full cross-referencing to the images, provides further information about the habitats and distribution of the species illustrated.
