The Moths & Butterflies of Guernsey [work in progress - currently stalled!]

A guide to the appearance, distribution, phenology and abundance of the moth species of Guernsey, Herm and associated islets. All photographs were taken in the Bailiwick of Guernsey, but please remember that some species are very difficult to identify, and also that individuals vary, so use other sources for accurate identification.
