The Amateur Entomologists' Society (AES) is one of the UK’s largest organisations dedicated to studying insects.
The AES’s highly regarded series of entomology books, which first appeared in 1941, are aimed at insect enthusiasts and experts alike. Many appear as part of the Amateur Entomologist Series and include A Handbook for Lepidopterists, A Dipterist’s Handbook, A Guide to Moth Traps and Their Use, and Preparing and Maintaining a Collection of Butterflies and Moths.
The Amateur Entomologists' Society was founded as the Entomological Exchange and Correspondence Club in 1935, changing to the current name two years later. The brimstone butterfly emblem first appeared in 1939 and has been in use ever since.
