Abstract: Traditionally, moth fieldguides have concentrated on the so-called "macro-moths", of which there are around 800 regular British species. To study all of Britain's species including the often very interesting microlepidoptera, requires an expensive library of reference material. The aim of this site is to illustrate as many species of British moths as possible and to provide this information in an accessible format. Over 2400 species have been recorded in the British Isles, and currently 2020 of these are illustrated, featuring 5536 photographs. If you have good quality photos of British moths or lifecycle stages not yet featured on UKMoths and would like to contribute, please check the guidelines for contributors.
