Hertfordshire and Middlesex Moth Group has launched a new and much-improved website.

The upgrade – funded by the HNHS – creates an impressive online resource for finding, identifying and recording moths in the two Vice-Counties.

Information about all moth species that have been reliably recorded – both 'macro' and 'micro' – is combined with photographs (where available) and information on identification and separating similar species.

Combined with distribution, the site creates an online county moth atlas that can be routinely updated as new records are received and verified. It also provides a portal for submitting records to Colin Plant, the moths Recorder for Hertfordshire and London.

Moth enthusiast wanting to view more detailed species information, distribution maps (using premium Ordnance Survey maps) and additional statistics and graphs can pay a suggested £20 a year to subscribe.
