To date c670 species of macro-moth along with c1120 species of micro-moth have been recorded in Norfolk since records began in Victorian times. This site aims to provide full details of all the species that occur (or once occurred) in Norfolk, with photographs, descriptions, flight graphs, latest records, distribution maps and more!

The recent Checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles (D. Agassiz, S. Beavan, R. Heckford, 2013) has been integrated into the site, and includes new species names, families, species order and position numbers (ABH). This new checklist has not been integrated in all UK data systems at this time, so Please continue to use old names and numbers when listing records until further notice.

It is now easier than ever to submit your records and photographs using the on-line recorder. All verified records will be included in the County database. - Jim Wheeler
