Dorset moth records (VC9) are now verified by a group of volunteers.  Dr Phil Sterling leads as the County Micro-moth Recorder, while the role of Macro-moth recorder is being shared by a verification team co-ordinated by the Dorset Environmental Records Centre (DERC) comprising: Adrian Bicker, Terry Box, Paul Butter, Peter Forrest, Julian Francis, Mike Hetherington, Tom Morris, Jack Oughton and Phil Sterling. The best way to submit records is through Living Record, which is the website that the verification team are using to review the records.  However, all records are welcomed (spreadsheets for preference): these can be sent to .  General queries about the recording arrangements can also be sent to that address. 

Guidance on how to format spreadsheets for submission to Dorset Moths can be found here.  Advice on how to treat aggregate species when submitting records by spreadsheet or Living Record can be found here.

Our colleagues at the Devon Moth Group have kindly made their look-up table spreadsheet available to Dorset moth recorders.  It can be found here .  This can be submitted to .

The Dorset Moths website and Facebook group  are active for postings of latest sightings and moth-related chat.

Please note: Bournemouth and Christchurch largely fall within VC11, which has separate moth recording arrangements - details available here .
