Welcome to the Dorset Moths Web site!

The purpose of Dorset Moths is to bring together all those Jackpot city bonus interested in moths in Dorset, and to promote the importance of moths as an indicator of bio-diversity and habitat health.  Although records are warmly welcomed for publication on this site, it is essential that records are sent to the County Recorders by observers each year, preferably in All British Casino tabular form.  Feel free to download the approved spreadsheets, the latest versions for 2013 (New) (for different versions of Excel and Open Documents), created by Les Hill, click here.
