Macro or Micro Moths

  • Could any of you knowledgeable field guys tell me what length or width constitutes a Macro or Micro Moth?

  • Many thanks Fred will be sending for the moth book when the wound in my pocket has healed, Moth Traps, not cheap..

  • Have the Herons moved north due to Global Warming, because their presence here is significant by the absence of these birds on my bird patches.


  1. hi Dave, the division of Macros and micros is a bit arbitrary. It's done on families not size, so some micros, such as the Mother of Pearl are bigger than some of the macros (pugs etc).

  2. A very understandable explanation to my enquiry, this may also help other people that were perhaps pondering the same question.
    Well done Tony.
