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.
