Packed with the stunning photography, this photographic guide is the perfect single-volume guide to Britain's moths. Its coverage is broad, including 871 macro-moths and 1276 species of micros. The concise text provides important information on identification, size and larval food plant for each species and, for the first time, maps are included. Introductory sections cover habitats, life cycles, conservation, and trapping and photographic techniques. The new edition is far more comprehensive than the original edition, and the main changes are as follows: Covers 800 additional species Many of the photographs have been replaced and the total number of images is now over 3200. The photos are presented in a uniform alignment for ease of comparison between species. Size bars are added below each image showing average forewing length. Taxonomy and nomenclature conform to the latest checklist (but old Bradley numbers are still included) Maps included for every species for the first time. Covers all of the British Isles (Great Britain, Ireland and the Isle of Man) plus the Channel Islands. Excludes butterflies and caterpillars to make room for much greater coverage of true moths. With many people now setting up their own backyard moth traps, and many others who are simply curious to know which species are fluttering around their light bulbs, this book provides a superb introduction to this fascinating insect group.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Jam-packed with photographs...this book really is superb and the quality of the photographs excellent. I'd say that you should make room on your bookshelf for this but I suspect you will use it so frequently it will rarely be on the shelf! * Bulletin of the Amateur Entomologists' Society (February 2009) *
A real breakthrough...There are two main points which make this book such a winner: the photographs and the range...I enthusiastically recommend this book. * The London Naturalist (December 2009) *
For relative beginners as myself, a good field guide is essential and the recently published British Moths & Butterflies by Chris Manley ticks all the right boxes as an introduction to this fascinating groupd of insects. * thevisitor.co.uk (6 August 2009) *
One of the most comprehensive guides to the subject ever published. * Bexley Times (26 February 2009) *
