Welcome to our web site

The Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire Entomological Society is the East Midlands premier organisation for the study of moths and insects.

A key aim of the society is to promote the study and recording of moths, butterflies, insects and Land Arthropods within the two counties. If you have seen any interesting insects please click on the insect records button and tell us about them! The society is also in effect, both the Derbyshire moth group and the Nottinghamshire moth group and is home to the County moth recorders. Moth trapping and other events are run throughout the summer months.
