About this book

Packed with the stunning photography of Chris Manley, this new photographic guide is the perfect guide to Britain's moths and butterflies. Its coverage is broad, including all of the 800 or so macro-moths (within which the butterflies are placed), including all vagrants, and many of the micros, along with some 300 types of caterpillars.

The authoritative text provides important information on identification, size and larval food plant for each species, within introductory sections detailing habitats, life cycles, conservation,and trapping and photographic techniques. With many people now setting up their own backyard moth traps or interested to know which species are fluttering around their light bulbs, this book provides a superb introduction to this fascinating insect group.

Media reviews

" [...] quite simply, sensational"
– Alan Titchmarsh

"One of the most comprehensive guides to the subject ever published."
Bexley Times (26/02/09)

"A real breakthrough [...] There are two main points which make this book such a winner: the photographs and the range [...] I enthusiastically recommend this book."
The London Naturalist (December 2009)

"Jam-packed with photographs [...] this book really is superb and the quality of the photographs excellent. I'd say that you should make room on your bookshelf for this but I suspect you will use it so frequently it will rarely be on the shelf!"
Bulletin of the Amateur Entomologists Society (Feb 09)

"For relative beginners as myself, a good field guide is essential and the recently published British Moths & Butterflies by Chris Manley ticks all the right boxes as an introduction to this fascinating groupd of insects."
