Elephant Hawk moth

There is a huge amount of interest in butterflies and moths at the moment: this is fantastic but it does mean that we cannot always reply to all the correspondence we receive.

Your interest in our work is very important to us and we provide a wealth of information on our website which we hope you will find helpful. This means that we can focus our efforts on our vital work to conserve butterflies, moths and our environment: we hope you agree that this makes the best use of our limited resources.

Contact our County Recorders

These skilled and dedicated volunteers act as the central point for butterfly and moth recording in the county or counties that they cover. You can contact County Butterfly Recorders here, and County Moth Recorders here. 

Please explore the following links on our website which we hope will answer many of your queries:

  • Identifications: if you have seen a butterfly or moth but are not sure what it is, please use the search function on our ID pages.
  • Sightings: general information on recording sightings can be found on our Recording Schemes page.
