Like them or loathe them, the smaller moths have common names too. First listed in Victorian publications, revised in the 1940s and again in the 2000s, this latest update by Jim Wheeler lists the vernacular names of 1633 resident, migrant and adventive micro moths of Great Britain and Ireland, and features scientific and vernacular indexes.
"[...] In summary I find myself agreeing with the thrust of this booklet. There is unquestionably an increasing rationale for adopting vernacular names for microlepidoptera. I am just not sure that many of those listed are appropriate (and I suspect I am not alone in that thought). No doubt is debate will continue, but hopefully in producing this booklet the debate will have moved on a bit."
