Two species are dealt with on each page. Sample plate page showing mounted plusias, daggers and other species from Clancy Most of the photographs in the species accounts section and the majority of mounted specimens portray British material.
Where they do not, careful consideration was taken to use those from European sources that involve moths with linear 'within-their-range' appearance. The images are on the whole very good quality, often in situ poses with obvious effort in attempting to capture jizz as well as colour and form.
