As of March 2015, an official website for Surrey Moths has been set-up here. There you'll find information on everything to do with the Surrey Branch of Butterfly Conservation, including the updated events calender for 2015. Hope to see you there!

lots of new moths for year - 22nd June

I had about 20 new species for the year. The warm night obviously helped, and the lack of wind. Even so there was a fullish moon and no cloud cover, so I was pleased to get a good selection. No hawkmoths was a bit disappointing but you cannot have everything!
New for year included:
Eurrhypara hortulata (small magpie)
buff ermine

blotched emerald

Cypress carpet

middle-barred minor
Udea olivalis


peach blossom
Myelois circumvoluta (thistle ermine)

Lozotaenia forsterana
Archips podana
Epiblema uddmanniana (Bramble shoot moth)
mottled rustic
small square-spot
common carpet
silver-ground carpet
dusky brocade.
