Gelechiid Recording Scheme

The Gelechiid Recording Scheme covers the 161 species in the family Gelechiidae (comprising 54 genera) recorded in the British Isles. It also, following common practise within recently published books, includes species recorded from the Channel Islands. The aims of the Scheme are: to encourage interest in, and recording of, gelechiid moths to produce provisional species distribution maps at 10km level or better to increase knowledge of this family’s ecology and status to aid their conservation to highlight areas where further research is needed
