Moth trapping (Dave Green)



By contributing your moth sightings to the National Moth Recording Scheme (via your County Moth Recorder), we can build up a picture of the distribution of each macro-moth species across the UK, Isle of Man and Channel Islands.

Such maps play a vital role in assessing the conservation status of species. By considering the rarity of each moth and, more importantly, whether the distribution of a species is increasing or declining over time, conservation priorities can be determined and action directed to the species at greatest risk.

We are currently unable to display the NMRS provisional macro-moth distribution maps using webservices due to technological incompatability with our website and the new NBN Gateway. We are working on a solution to this and will let you know when this problem is resolved.
