Devon is a county rich in moths. Some 1080 species of micro-moths and 660 species of macro-moths have been recorded in the county, which represent about two-thirds of all the moth species ever recorded in Britain.
Here you can find up-to-date checklists of the micro- and macro-moths recorded in Devon, as well as information on the flight periods of macro-moths and a guide to the pugs moths. These resources are provided to help with the identification of moths in Devon. If you think you have recorded a moth that does not appear on the Devon checklists, please retain the moth and contact the County Moth Recorder a.s.a.p.
