Northamptonshire Moth Recording

Summary of Species Richness in Each Grid Square

The maps below represent the number of species that have been recorded in each of the 10Km grid squares in the County. From these it can be seen that our knowledge of the local moth fauna has increased rapidly over the past few years. These maps also highlight areas that remain under-worked, and we would therefore be very keen to receive records from these areas.

This map shows the total number of species (macro and micro) recorded in each grid square after the incorporation of all records received up to the end of 2015.

This clearly shows that the West of the county is less well recorded than central and East, with particular paucity of records from 10Km grid squares SP57 and SP67.

The high species count in SP85 reflects the work done in Yardley Chase over the years, with particular focus on micros, leaf-mines, etc.
