About this book

This concise guide is a companion to the main Field Guide to the Moths of Great Britain and Ireland by the same expert authors, but is in a condensed form with artwork opposite the species descriptions and lay-flat binding for ease of use in the field. It includes brief but comprehensive field descriptions of all the macro-moths in Great Britain, Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, and this second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the latest advances in taxonomy. Featuring more than 1,700 superbly detailed colour artworks and covering nearly 900 species, this portable guide is an essential addition to every moth-lover's field kit.

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.
