Lancashire Moth Recording
An informal group of amateur moth recorders, working to continue the recording of moths in VC59  & VC60 and  to help other moth enthusiasts.

Please help us to help you. 
We are all just beginning to tackle the tasks involved in acting as country recorders. Any suggestions you can give will be welcomed.

New Versions of Spreadsheets now available. October 2014
Now on Version 3
Small corrections to both Macro and micro sheets. 
Changes to some taxon names, status and addition of some vernacular names for more micros.

If you have already downloaded copies of the spreadsheets from this site, please take a moment to download the latest versions. As you can imagine, with new programs, we are still finding small errors. 
The latest was in the Micro entry excel spreadsheet, so if you are having problems, download it again now. 

The links are on the Submitting Records page.

The changes made include adding the new ABH numbers to the sheets, for information, as well as changing the internal workings of the spreadsheets to improve readability between Open Office and Excel. This latter change should be totally transparent to you. 
The ABH numbers (standing for Agassiz, Beavan, Heckford)  are the new pan European numbering system which is beginning to be more commonly used. 

We have also added a copy of the Agassiz checklist to the  Guidlines for Recorders page, or you can download it HERE
