Welcome to the award winning Norfolk Moths website! New features, better navigation, improved interactivity, all with fresh new styling.

New for 2014, the brand new Checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles (D. Agassiz, S. Beavan, R. Heckford) has been integrated into the site, and includes new species names, families, species order and position numbers (ABH). The original species names and reference numbers (BF) will remain. Please continue to use old names and numbers when listing records until further notice.

To date c667 species of macro-moth along with c1112 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!

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
