The 'List'

The below list is comprised of beetle species that have been documented in moth traps from all kinds of sources including:

Martin Harvey's 'Kite net' ,

my personal records,

and this paper by Darren Mann and Steve lane 

and from the 'Moth trap intruders' Facebook page.

I imagine there are plenty that haven't made the list, but it'll give you a good starting point at the very least. I'm yet to cover all species in my pictorial guides but the most likely, and most readily identifiable species have been included where possible as you can see...I have my work cut out!

If you have an image of a species on the list that is not included in this pictorial guide let me know and I'll add it (with credit of course)
