Macro-moth distribution records for the UK for the period pre 2000 from Butterfly Conservation
Moth provisional distribution data for the period pre 2000 from the National Moth Recording Scheme led by Butterfly Conservation. The National Moth Recording Scheme provides a comprehensive network for recording the 2500+ species of moths in the UK, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, through which members of the public can contribute moth sightings to underpin conservation. The NMRS was launched in 2007 and was developed as part of the Moths Count project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund with support from many other organisations and is now an ongoing recording scheme.
This provisional dataset represents all Watsonian Vice-counties of Great Britain, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
These data may contain errors or omissions. All data submitted to the National Moth Recording Scheme, whether complete or partial vice-county datasets, are considered by the scheme as verified by the vice-county moth recorders. Records are accepted only from vice-county moth recorders and Records Centres. We have confidence in the data and believe that reasonable steps have been taken to ensure that they are correct and complete; however, errors and omissions are expected. This is a provisional dataset with some vice-counties having only partial datasets.
The National Moth Recording Scheme is a collation of local computerised datasets of modern and historical moth records forwarded by individual vice-county moth recorders, local Biological & Environmental Records Centres, Biological Records Centre (a part of CEH) and Rothamsted Insect Survey. No specific methodology is required from recorders: records of any moth species seen anywhere in the county at any time of the year by any recorders are accepted, subject to verification by the data forwarders.
