Scottish Micro Moth Distribution Maps

Compiled by Mark Cubitt

The table of micro moth families on this page lists those recorded in Scotland.  Clicking on a family name link will display a page with a table listing the species within that family recorded in Scotland. Below the table is a list of micro moth species; the species names are links to the species on the respective family page.  The browser Edit> Find function can be used to search for a species in this list.

Data at the Vice County level has been supplied by Dr Mark Young in collaboration with Tony Davis. 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.  Further updates will be made periodically based on new records which should be submitted to .

Data at 10km level is available from the National Moth Recording Scheme dabase for a number of vice counties to varying degrees of completeness at at the end of 2016. The map below gives an indication of this based on the number of records in the NMRS.
