Moths

A total of 683 moth species have been confirmed in the Recording Area, this list comes from the work of many recorders and two publications; “Larger Lepidoptera of Dawlish Warren” and “The Moths of Devon” both written by Roy McCormick. All species were first recorded in or before 1985, unless otherwise stated.

The Nomenclature, numbering and classification order follows Agassiz, D.J.L., Beavan, S.D. & Heckford R.J., 2013 A checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles. The numbers in brackets are from Bradley, J. D., 2000 Checklist of Lepidoptera recorded from the British Isles.

If anyone wishes to moth on the Warren permission must first be sought from Golf Course or Teignbridge District Council.

Species not in bold type were reported from the Warren before 1990 but the records were not considered proven when reviewed by Roy McCormick for the Moths of Devon, a number of these are clear errors but they also include a number of heathland species. Dawlish Warren previously had more extensive areas of dune heath, so some of these older records may well be valid cf old records of Marsh Clubmoss, Common Cotton-grass, Silver-studded Blue and Grayling butterflies. Please pass on any records you may have to the Recording Group, they will be forwarded on to the County Recorder and Devon Biodiversity Records Centre.
