I am grateful to the following for their sponsorship towards the maintenance of this site, without which it would not be possible:

HANTSMOTHS - The Moths of Hampshire and Isle of Wight

The site aims to provide full details of all the species that occur in the county and beyond, with good quality photographs, descriptions, distribution maps and details of annual occurrence and phenology patterns.

Species Accounts: The main body of the site - all British species are included, the majority of which have been actually photographed in the two counties, but where no such image is available, or better quality representative images have been obtained elsewhere, these are included. Click on the links above to select a family, or use the Systematic Lists, starting here.

Flying Tonight: See what is likely to be on the wing this week, or select any week of the year.

The photographs on this site are a result of the generosity of a large number of contributors from all over the country, or taken by myself. I would like to express particular thanks to my good friend Nick Montegriffo for the sterling work he has put in to expand the species narratives, a monumental task that I would not have had a chance to do so thoroughly myself.

I am always attempting to improve the quality and scope of the site, so if you have images of species that are not illustrated here, show different forms, or are of better quality than those currently shown, and are willing to share them, I would be more than happy to hear from you. I have a wishlist of species that are yet to be added, contributions for which would be gratefully received.
