About this book

Around 25 million moth records from Butterfly Conservation's National Moth Recording Scheme and Moths Ireland have been combined to produce this landmark publication – the first ever atlas of all macro-moths in Britain, Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Atlas of Britain and Ireland's Larger Moths includes accounts for 866 macro-moth species, each with a distribution map showing current and historical occurrences, trends, status, a phenology chart and colour image. A further 25 species, which were former residents, but have not been recorded from 1970 onwards, have a distribution map.

Brief introductory chapters detail the long-standing tradition of moth recording and the development of the National Moth Recording Scheme, methods used to collect and analyse the data, an overview of trends since the 1970s and the environmental drivers of change in moth populations and distributions.

  • Heavy on statistics but lacking passion for moths
    By Anthony 28 Dec 2021 Written for Hardback
    This is undoubtedly a great achievement recording the fate of our moths over the last 50 years or so, including deep statistical analysis of changes in distribution and abundance of various moth species, but probably not a book for the layman, beyond the take-home message that many of our moths are in serious decline. Changes in distribution and abundance are to be expected due to anthropogenic impacts, but I am not sure that this should set alarm bells ringing, more so than it has in the past 6000 years. I am pleased to see (where I am living in the South Pennines) that there are far more butterfly and moth species now, than 40 years ago, although this may have come at the expense of a few rarer species that have disappeared or are declining. It’s difficult to judge whether these changes represent an “apocalypse” or simply an “adjustment” due to natural causes (which include human impacts). I enjoyed looking at the maps of the species that I am familiar with. It is a very beautiful book and a great historical document but I am not sure it will have far reach beyond specialists lepidopterists.

Media reviews

"[...] The photographs are superb – the pristine colours of the fast-fading geometers in particular are a revelation. [...] The atlas is a magnificent piece of work. For moth fans, it is the book we have been waiting for all our lives."
– Peter Marren, British Wildlife 31(3), February 2020
