Dorset Environmental Records Centre
The purpose of Dorset Moths is to bring together all those interested in moths in Dorset, and to promote the importance of moths as an indicator of biodiversity and habitat health.

Dorset is fortunate in having diverse unspoilt habitat, and a fine list of resident moth species; also being on the central South coast it is well placed for immigrants, irruptive and pioneering new species for Britain. Some of the coastal headlands are magnets for moths and trappers alike, with a small but hardy number of resident moth-trappers spread throughout the County. See here for information on the County.
