The Moths OF Thickson’s Woods

Illustrated Field Checklist by Phill Holder


This checklist documents all the moths recorded within Thickson’s Woods Nature Reserve. Using sheets and traps all species were identified with many being photographed before release, unharmed. No collecting is allowed in the Reserve. The “Mothing” team lead by David Beadle has recorded 1006 species so far. David Beadle, Mike King, Mike McEvoy, Dennis Barry, Margaret Carney, Phil Reyenga and I make up the team. It has been an incredibly successful program. We even attracted a moth that had never been seen in Canada before as well as many Ontario rarities. Quite a coup for Thickson’s Woods.
