Possible and potential moth extinctions in England

Possible and potential moth extinctions in England

Breadcrumbs

9 February 2015

As part of a project for Natural England, Butterfly Conservation have identified moth species that are potentially at risk of extinction in England by 2020.

These species are listed here along with several species that are already presumed extinct. It is clear that many of those listed, particularly some of the microlepidoptera, are possibly overlooked and therefore targetted survey is encouraged.
