Moths of Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull
Our region supports a wide range of moth species. Many are common, some are at risk due to habitat loss and others are seriously threatened due to their very limited distribution in the county.
Some species have not been seen for many years and their current status in the area is unknown.
Without the work of many dedicated moth recorders, much of the information we currently know would not exist. The branch is lucky to have many moth recorders who run public and private moth trapping nights across the region with the keenest willing to travel far and wide and stay up throughout the night before recording their catch as the sun rises. We also have many members who regularly moth trap in their own gardens, for many a weekly activity with records spanning many years.
Warwickshire Annual Moth Report and Moth Trapping Reports
Published once a year, our annual moth report is distributed to those involved in moth recording in the Warwickshire region.
The branch holds regular moth trapping and recording sessions across Warwickshire. Some of these sessions can be attended by the general public and these are listed on our events page. Other sessions are held on private or sensitive sites where the public does not have access (normally due to site restrictions concerning health and safety) such as within working quarries. Reports for each session is available to download below.

Warwickshire Moths Species List
Please note that this list is not complete. Our moth species data for this web site is currently under development. Due to the extensive nature of the list, details and photographs of each species will be added to this web site when time allows. Alternatively, you can view a thumbnail guide to our resident species.
