New Devon micro-moth checklist available

A new, up-dated micro-moth checklist for Devon is now available on the Devon Moth Group website. This list, expertly produced by Devon Moth Group members Stella Beavan and Bob Heckford, includes over 1,000 species of micro-moths that have been recorded in the County. It has now been updated with recently added species and changes in scientific names, and has been reordered into the correct taxonomic order according to the Agassiz, Beavan & Heckford Checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles.

The list provides a fantastic resource for anyone recording moths in Devon and DMG is extremely grateful to Stella and Bob for all their hard work creating, revising and maintaining it.
