To the Staffordshire Moth Group's website; devoted to the study, recording and, above all, enjoyment of moths in the vice-county of Staffordshire.
Ranging in height up to 1684ft (513m), Staffordshire encompasses a wide range of habitat types including limestone dales, gritstone moors, acid heaths and bogs, deciduous and coniferous woodland, upland and lowland water bodies, and even a small patch of saltmarsh!
Given its central position, the county is also home to species that are at either the northern or southern limits of their ranges. The scope for the lepidopterist is indeed extensive.
If you are a beginner you might find the Getting started section of use. If you are a seasoned moth hunter then the distribution maps might spur you on to greater things!.
Whatever your level of knowledge I hope you find something of interest on this site.
