About this book

The fully revised and expanded second edition of the ground-breaking book that made the fascinating micro-moth group accessible to the general naturalist.

Written by a team of moth experts under the editorship of Phil Sterling, this is a complete guide to all the micro-moth families found in Great Britain and Ireland, including the Channel Islands. Species descriptions include field characters, similar species, flight season, habitat, larval foodplants, status and distribution. The introduction covers identifying, studying and finding micro-moths, including field techniques. Also included are innovative keys to families and genera.

The second edition covers a total of 1,300 species, with more than 1,500 detailed photographs and artworks, and 900 updated species distribution maps. Names and species order have been revised to reflect the latest published taxonomy and common names have also been added, making this a must-have introduction to British microlepidoptera.

Biography

Phil Sterling is a conservationist, writer and public speaker with a particular interest in lesser-known moth species. He holds an MA (Oxon) in Zoology and his DPhil (Oxon) was on the ecology and biological control of the Brown-tail Moth. He is a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society, and a member of the British Entomological and Natural History Society and British Ecological Society. He's worked in conservation for 35 years and is currently at Butterfly Conservation where he works on a UK-wide project to improve habitat for wildlife in the built environment.

Mark Parsons has been recording moths since 1976, and has contributed many articles to entomological journals, and written papers and publications on Lepidoptera. He has a BSc in Biology, is a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society and is a member of the British Entomological and Natural History Society and the Societas Europae Lepidopterologica. He's worked as an entomologist for the Nature Conservancy Council and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, as well as a lepidopterist at the Natural History Museum. Since 1999, he has worked for Butterfly Conservation, overseeing their moth conservation efforts.

Richard Lewington is an acknowledged leader in the field of insect illustration. His meticulous paintings are the mainstay of many of the modern classics of field-guide art, including Butterflies of Britain & Ireland, Guide to Garden Wildlife and Field Guide to the Bees of Great Britain and Ireland. Richard has also designed and illustrated wildlife stamps for several countries. In 1999 he was awarded Butterfly Conservation's Marsh Award for the promotion of Lepidoptera conservation, and in 2010 the Zoological Society of London's Stamford Raffles Award for contribution to zoology.
