Priority Moths

The South-central England RAP (2000) recognised 37 macro-moths as high priority species, namely:

A further 96 medium priority macro-moths were also recognised.

The 2007 review of UKBAP species resulted in a major revision of the UK high priority moth list, with many new additions of both macro- and micro-moths (for further detail, see Bourn (1997) pp. 19-21 in Issue 96 of Butterfly). The Hampshire & Isle of Wight list is currently under review, but of the 37 High Priority macro-listed above, those on the current UKBAP priority list have an asterisk (*) after their name.
