Colour Identification Guide to Moths of the British Isles. 3rd edition
A new and revised edition of the classic guide to British macro-moths with two new plates of recently discovered species and moths not figured in the previous editions. Together with six additional colour
plates covering nearly 150 critical species and groups of species adding to the book’s identification features.
The text has been thoroughly revised and updated by Bernard Skinner both regarding the effects of climate change and many important records of distribution, status, times of appearance, new arrivals and migrant additions. The moth fauna of Great Britain, Ireland and the Channel Islands has been updated to the end of 2008.
The colour plates from the previous editions of photographs by David Wilson have been re-scanned and greatly improved in both colour and quality. Fifty one species illustrated for the first time in this edition, showing newly recorded resident and migrants, single records and extinct species.
The essential identification guide to the macro-lepidoptera of Great Britain and Ireland.
