What's on the wing tonight

The following moths are all expected to be out now.  This list is based on the current week (Week 7) and lists all species found at this time of year from data for the past few years in Somerset (VC5 and 6).

The most likely species come first - note that those at the end of the list may be unlikely.  Two or more records must exist in this week for a species to be included in the list.  Both macros and micros are listed and it is hoped that this may help you look for common micros that may be unfamiliar.  'Code' is the Bradley and Fletcher Code Number.

Click the 'Code' field links to see distribution, flight times and more information on a particular species.

For a full list of species see Species Index (Macro species) and Species Index (Micro species).
