About the Author

Phil Sterling began his interest in moths before starting school. Today he concentrates on elucidating life histories of lesser known moth species, and on promoting his passion for wildlife to a wide audience through publication of books, papers and public speaking. He holds the degree of MA (Oxon) in Zoology and his DPhil (Oxon) was on the ecology and biological control of the Brown-tail Moth. He is a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society, and a member of the British Entomological and Natural History Society and British Ecological Society. He has been in nature conservation research and practice for 35 years and is currently at Butterfly Conservation where works on a UK-wide project to improve habitat for wildlife in the built environment. Barry Henwood has been interested in butterflies, moths and their caterpillars since primary school. He read Medical Sciences at Selwyn College, Cambridge and went on to qualify as a doctor at Guy's Hospital Medical School. He worked as a GP in Newton Abbot, Devon for 26 years. He is a member of the British Entomological and Natural History Society and now volunteers for Butterfly Conservation and Devon Wildlife Trust. He has written and contributed to many publications in entomological journals. He has reared and photographed the caterpillars of several hundred species of macro-moths and butterflies. Richard Lewington is an acknowledged leader in the field of insect illustration. His meticulous paintings of wildlife are the mainstay of many of the modern classics of field-guide art, including The Butterflies of Britain and Ireland, Guide to Garden Wildlife and Field Guide to the Bees of Great Britain and Ireland. Richard has also designed and illustrated wildlife stamps for several countries. In 1999 he was awarded Butterfly Conservation's Marsh Award for the promotion of Lepidoptera conservation, and in 2010 the Zoological Society of London's Stamford Raffles Award for contribution to zoology.
