Micros (smaller moths) Butterflies Macros (larger moths)


This checklist was initially prepared by L.J. Evans based on his personal observations and collections from Sutton Park, mainly over the period 1940-86. A significant number of his records are undated. Notes on the species, such as "common" or "occasional" are due to him, and thus relate to the period in which he was active. Some of the other records are from a list for Sutton Park supplied by the now defunct Invertebrate Site Register (ISR); a number of these appear to be duplicates, possibly because the same original record was reported to the ISR at different times by different people. Records have not been regularly updated after the late 1990s, although there has been frequent moth trapping in the park.

Latin names used in the list are based on the Systematic List of UK Moths (including butterflies). Where there have been name changes, the Bradley & Fletcher (1979) and the Emmet & Heath (1991) names are always given as synonyms. Where possible, English names have been added for the benefit of the non-specialist. Records are arranged by the systematic family order and then alphabetically by Latin name.

Records are presented in three sections: the smaller and generally more primitive moths ('micros'), the butterflies, and the larger moths ('macros'). These sections have no scientific status; rather they reflect the degree of interest shown by naturalists.

The butterflies and larger moths are defined here as all the families from the Hesperiidae (skippers) onwards in the Bradley & Fletcher list, together with four other families which are traditionally included in the macrolepidoptera but which are more closely related to other microlepidopteran families: Hepialidae, Cossidae, Sesiidae and Zygaenidae. The majority of the records of the macrolepidoptera are by L.J. Evans, being based on work undertaken by him since about 1940 and up to about 1986. The date for these is given as 1965~ unless a more specific date is known.

There are very few records of the microlepidoptera of Sutton Park. In view of the scarcity of records, the list includes information from the Victoria County History. Unfortunately, this work generally does not give the locality in more detail than 'Sutton Coldfield'. In most cases, the assignment to Sutton Park was carried out by L.J. Evans, based on his knowledge that some recorders (e.g. S.E.W. Carlier and R.C. Bradley) collected only or mainly in Sutton Park, although species were excluded if their food plant was not known to occur in the park. Clearly, this assignment must be considered tentative, and species not recorded later are in need of confirmation. Records for a considerable number of the species of the microlepidoptera are based on the identification of the mines produced by the larvae rather than of the adult moths.
