About this book

Illustrated with many high quality photographs, flight graphs and ink drawings, this volume summarises the current and historic status of the 1,700+ species of moth that are known to have been found in the region around Bristol and Bath.

Each species has been assigned a category reflecting its occurrence and abundance in the region based upon the records submitted by members of the Bristol & District Moth Group and many others, from 1990 to 2007. Distribution maps for all the larger species (macros) and for a proportion of the smaller species (micros) are presented so that the status can be seen at a glance.

Introductory chapters describe the species special to the area such as the Scarce Hook-tip and Silky Wave, the habitats and the types of species that occur there, the history of recording and collecting in the region, photographing moths, case studies on particular sites and the conservation and protection of the local moth fauna.
