Moth Recorders

The moth recorders are responsible for maintaining a database of all the moths recorded in the county. This data then becomes part of a national database which is important for providing a wide range of ecological data for research.

Gloucestershire generates a large number of records and so we have three recorders; if you are wondering about their strange titles then search the internet for 'vice counties' - Wikipedia has a good summary.

If you don't know which recorder to contact then refer to this map and choose the one that looks most likely - if you get it wrong the recorder will sort it out.

VC33 - East Gloucestershire

Attachments

You may think the next bit much more complicated than it should be and you are correct. Unfortunately there are people around the world who search for email addresses on websites in order to send spam and/or malicious software: we have to make it more difficult for them.

The butterfly and moth recorders expect to receive spreadsheets or other documents attached to emails and here is the method for that. Beside some buttons on the list above there is a word in brackets, for example (webmaster) or (VC33-eastglos). To send an attachment to one of these people you use the word to construct an email address like word-in-brackets@gloucestershire-butterflies.org.uk, e.g. for the webmaster it would be webmaster@gloucestershire-butterflies.org.uk, and send the attachment in the usual way. Please put BC-GLOS at the start of the email's subject so that it is more easily distinguished from spam.

If you have documents or files for other people then please contact them using their button first, please do not try to guess an email address.
