Dorset Moths

Earliest dates


Latest sightings -  last updated on 9th May at 07:00

Please contact me with any records of interesting resident species, or migrant moths, including photographs, for publication on the website.  For any records received, permission for publication is assumed.  The sightings are listed roughly from south to north in the county, invariably Portland / Weymouth area is first, followed by Durlston.  The dates below are when overnight traps were set, rather than checked, while daytime records are on the date seen.  I am indebted to local and visiting lepidopterists for supplying their records, and to Martin Cade at Portland Bird Observatory in particular, and other local and national websites.  Please note that all observations and comments published on the Dorset Moths Latest Sightings webpage or any other external website, especially with respect to notable and important Dorset moth records, are unconfirmed and remain so until the record is forwarded to and ratified by the appropriate county moth recorder.  See Submit records.
