The Bereg Lowland is the most humid and coolest part of the Great Hungarian Plain, and is also the richest in natural or close-to-natural forests. Among them, the Bockerek forest (between Tákos and Vámosatya) is one of the most important. It is a nature conservation area and a large portion is a forest reserve. Its condition needs to be continually monitored; thus, the Forestry Research Institute has been monitoring the forest with light traps for a considerable time. From this material we analyzed the faunal list of the nocturnal macro-moths. Since we only used a taxonomic list of species from a 9-year period without frequency data, we only surveyed the composition according to faunal types and ecological faunal components with special regard to significant pest species in forestry.
Keywords: hardwood gallery forest, oak-hornbeam forest, basic fauna, faunal elements, montane species
