The Deaths-head Hawk-moth - Acherontia atroposMuch work is currently (as at the end of February 2001) being undertaken to bring the records of Cheshire's macro-moths into order following the passing of County Recordership from C. Ian Rutherford to myself, Steve J. McWilliam in early 1998. Part of this work is defining complete six-figure Ordnance-Grid References for all records, past, present and, hopefully, future in order that the data may be plotted on distribution maps to aid future analysis. Until that time, it is requested that anyone wishing a copy of the macro-moth list, in its current state, should either contact:  The Cheshire Ecological Record Centre (rECOrd) - the Cheshire Local Record Centre for biological records of all types and formats (currently temporarily hosted by Cheshire Wildlife Trust (CWT) - at Grebe House, Reaseheath, Nantwich, Cheshire, CW5 6DG   - Tel: 01270-610180,   Fax: 01270-610430,  E-Mail:  - see also - This Local Record Centre is soon to be housed in new offices at Chester Zoo (end of March 2001)
