Scottish Micro Moth Distribution Maps

The table on this page lists the micro moths of the family shown that have been recorded in Scotland. The maps show, at a Vice County level, where each species has been recorded.  

Clicking on the map will show an enlarged version of the map. The cursor (arrow) keys on a keyboard can be used to move to the next or previous species' enlarged map.

Clicking on the Taxon (scientific name) will open a browser window for that species in the ukmoths web site.

Data has been supplied by Dr Mark Young in collaboration with John Langmaid.  The list is provisional and may contain some errors and Mark would welcome any comments about this from anyone finding such errors.  New Vice County records are published in the Annual Microlepidoptera Review, which appears each year in the Entomologists Record journal.  Updates are made periodically based on new records which should be submitted to .

Data at 10km level is available for the Gelechiid family and has been provided by Stephen Palmer from the Gelechiid National Recording Scheme.

Species with a first record in 2013 and later are shown with a blue spot, in 2017 with green and earlier records an orange spot.
