Based on Chris Manley's British Moth and Butterflies: a photographic guide, and accessing the fantastic resources of UKMoths as well as distribution maps from the National Moth Recording Scheme when online, this astonishing resource covers an amazing 2,147 species of lepidoptera found in Britain and Ireland. This comprehensive resource provides beautiful macro photographs of most of the micro and macro moths, including butterflies as well as eggs, larvae and pupae, leaf-mines and characteristic plant damage of some species. The photography is stunning, and is proof that moths are not dull and brown.
