Guide to Pug moths

Group member Phil Dean has produced this easy-reference spreadsheet to help with the study of pugs in Devon. It contains information on phenology (flight period), size, foodplants and whether the species is known from Devon. This should aid narrowing down the possibilities when trying to identify a pug. Remember you are unlikely to catch a pug far from its foodplant. Rearing pugs from the appropriate plant is also a good way to get to grips with this difficult group of moths.
