Welcome to the home of the Somerset Moth Group, a website all about the moths of Somerset, UK

    The Somerset Moth Group, was formed in 1989 by a band of local enthusiasts and made more formal with a constitution and member subscriptions. We are affiliated with Butterfly Conservation: Somerset

    We aim to record and study the moths of the County and to promote the importance of moths in the context of biodiversity and habitat health.

    The group caters for all levels of expertise, from the beginner to the expert.

    The purpose of this website is to document the moths of the two Vice Counties into which Somerset is divided, VC5 (South Somerset) and VC6 (North Somerset), with good quality photographs, distribution maps, phenology patterns and more.
