How to submit data

We collect data on micros and macros for  East Kent VC 15 and 16. If you want to check which vice county your records are from then click on the following link and enter your grid reference or postcode: VC map

Our  e-mail address is mothsinkent@gmail.com. Ian Hunter is the recorder for VC15, East Kent and Dave Shenton is the recorder VC16, West Kent.  Please indicate in the title of your e-mail which VC your records are from.

We use mapmate to record our data.  If you have this software then you can send it directly to us at CUK db0 for VC15 or CUK dcm for VC16.

If you enter your data directly onto the  National Moth Recording Scheme online system then your data will automatically be forwarded to us at the end of the year.

We will only accept records that are mapmate friendly, ideally exported as an excel spreadsheet from mapmate or in the mapmate template format. There are templates below to help you with this.

Macro template

Micro template

Template using B&S number to enter

Template using RES number to enter

If you use the micro or macro template it would be helpful if you deleted the species that you have not recorded.

Please record ‘agg’ where appropriate (as indicated on the sheets) and feel free to submit data at the end of the year or during, which ever suits you.

If you do not count the number of moths that you count then enter 0 to indicate that at least one was recorded, we can cope with this!

If you are using another format then please use the taxon names that are recognised by mapmate, these are provided in the above templates and in the spreadsheet below:

The Kent Moth Group has agreed that if data is provided to the county moth recorder then it will be assumed that the owner of the data gives permission for us to share information with interested, not for profit, parties.  If you do not want your data to be used in this way then please let us know when you submit it.

The 1km square areas that have records recorded are shown below and may help to identify new sites for investigation
