Nearly all the resident and migrant British and Irish species of macro-moths have been illustrated and described in this portable guide. Concise field descriptions written by leading moth experts Paul Waring and Martin Townsend feature opposite colour plates illustrated by Richard Lewington.

This is a great practical solution for every active moth enthusiast.
Best, most user-friendly moth ID guide on the market
by Doug Mackenzie Dodds in UK http://theblackrabbitwarren.blogspot.com/
This book might not catch your eye on the shelf - small, paperback and easily hidden between larger, more attractively-designed moth ID books, but if you are into your moths, I'd thoroughly recommend it.
It's perfect for the bookshelf but comes into its own in the field. It's small, light, covered in a waterproof layer, the moths are well-ordered in the book, lifesize and in the two years I've owned it it's not let me down once.
It's very comprehensive - ie if you trap a moth (or find one!) - you will find it in this book - and so much easier than other, larger, showier, less waterproof, less well ordered books.
I thoroughly recommend this book if you own a moth trap or even if you don't.

Most disappointed to find this edition is not the old ring-bound style. I find this very annoying as it does not lay flat so awkward to use balanced on a knee whilst checking the moth trap !!!!!!!!!!!
