Atropos is the UK journal for butterfly, moth and dragonfly enthusiasts, published four times a year including an annual Migration Review. A central theme of the publication is insect migration, but all subjects relevant to British Lepidoptera and Odonata are covered, including conservation, identification, biology, field observations and material on Western Palearctic species of relevance to Britain.
Such is the importance of migration that we dedicate one whole issue to it every year. We look at the main migration events, additions to the British list, and the occurrence of pyralid and macro-moths with less than 20 British records. Covering butterflies, moths and dragonflies, and liberally illustrated throughout. The ever popular Reports from Coastal Stations summarises the year from various hotspots around the British Isles and can reveal some surprising trends and similarities between sites, including the occurrence of species as migrants that are more often thought of as resident. There is still much to learn about the fascinating subject of insect migration and the Migration Review will keep you at the forefront of understanding.
