If you are planning a moth-related event and you would like to publicise it here please send the details to trapping@sussexmothgroup.org.uk.

The Sussex Moth Group would like to thank its memebers and all those people who have submitted their records to the The Sussex Biodiversity Record Centre. This website currently holds details of over 1,000,000 records and it could not exist without the enormous volume of distribution and phenology data which is derived from these records. We would also like to express our grateful thanks to Colin Pratt F.R.E.S, County Recorder for Moths and Butterflies, for his unsting efforts to ensure that these records are as accurate as possible.
