About this book

This concise photographic field guide helps you to identify the day-flying moths most likely to be seen in Great Britain and Ireland. It combines stunning photographs, clear and authoritative text and an easy-to-use design to increase your knowledge and enjoyment of these intriguing and often colourful insects. Like butterflies, some moths fly regularly in sunshine, whereas others that usually fly at night are readily disturbed from their resting places during the day. Britain's Day-Flying Moths describes all of these species and features at least one photograph of each in its natural, resting pose. A brief description of each moth covers the key identification features and when and where to look for it, and includes information on its status, life history, special features and caterpillar food plants. Other sections explain how to distinguish moths from butterflies, and also provide essential information on biology, classification, habitats, gardening for moths, conservation and legislation and recording and monitoring.

- Individual accounts for 158 species and photos of 28 others
- More than 320 stunning photos, with every moth shown as you see it
- Beautifully designed, easy to use and clearly written

Media reviews

Reviews of the first edition:

"As is usual with the WildGuides books, this is a well-thought and user-friendly guide. [...] Highly recommended."
– BTO book reviews

"[...] Who will buy the book? Certainly many of the thousands who are already keen butterfly addicts and curious to know what other four-winged beauties are passing through their gaze! This book may attract another wave of natural-history enthusiasts into the mothing arena who, up to now, were perhaps put off by a rather daunting glance at one of the more traditional (but often excellent) moth field guides already published. It may also appeal to birders looking for another interest during the midsummer avian hiatus. Keen lepidopterists will already know most of the species dealt with, but will appreciate the book's convenient format and ease of reference when not squinting into a moth trap in the dead of night. It is a small shame that the book did not arrive before the late autumn as most buyers will now have to wait until next spring to put it to the test, but I am sure they will enjoy it when they do!"
