Moth Distribution in Lancashire

Atlas of Lancashire Moths

A new on-line resource has been created with the help of the Tanyptera Trust detailing the distribution of moths throughout VC59 & 60 up to and including 2019. It can be viewed/downloaded here.

10Km Distribution Tables

This page gives information about how species rich each 10Km square within the two vice counties is as well as which moths have been seen in which square historically.

To work out which square goes with which vice-county go to the Recording Area page of this website.

Moth Matrix

The Lancashire 10km square Matrix (produced and updated by Kevin McCabe) covers every moth species recorded in Lancashire. The Matrix has now been updated to contain all known records up to and including 31st December 2020. The matrix has been divided into two sections (those species only recorded before 1960 and not subsequently anywhere in Lancashire are located towards the end of the table). This section can be used more easily to target searches for these moths. '10k Matrix 2020'
