British Moths

This 2nd edition of Chris Manley’s British Moths has been updated with new features and photographs. Butterflies and caterpillars have been dropped to make space for almost 800 extra micros, bringing the total of all moth species covered to 2147.

British Moths (2nd edition)

This guide is particularly useful for carrying in the field as it covers macro and micro species in a single volume and is entirely illustrated with photographs of live moths as seen in the wild.

The moths in the photographs are now all aligned similarly, which makes comparison for identification purposes much easier. Having photographs makes it simple for the user to compare species to their own photos. There is also now a distribution map for all resident species, as well as a size bar to show actual forewing length for handy comparison with a live moth.

Below you will find a few sample pages.

The text has been updated with the 2013 Agassiz, Beavan and Heckford taxonomy, though the previous Bradley numbers are also shown. An illustrated index of the new Families is included.
