One of the most eagerly anticipated insect guides for years. This is the most comprehensive field guide to micro-moths ever published in a single volume, and, for the first time, makes this fascinating and important group of insects accessible to the general naturalist. The guide covers 1,033 species, with more than 1,500 superbly detailed artworks and photographs. It also includes 900 specially commissioned maps. Written by a team of moth experts under the editorship of Phil Sterling, it provides coverage of all the micro-moth families found in Great Britain and Ireland, including the Channel Islands. Species descriptions include field characters, similar species, flight season, habitat, larval foodplants, status and distribution. The general introduction covers identifying, studying and finding micro-moths, including field techniques, and there is also a series of innovative keys to families and genera, as well as a comprehensive checklist incorporating the latest thinking on taxonomy.
