Glen Tarff SSSI
The surveys aimed to detect the presence of the notified beetle assemblage feature (Bolitophagus reticulatus) of Glen Tarff SSSI in order to inform the site condition assessment.
We have a very high level of confidence in this dataset. The recorder and/or determiner is a highly experienced ecologist. Where necessary, rare specimens were compared against reference collections, those held in the National Museums Scotland collection and identities confirmed with experts.
Surveys targeted the beetle assemblage feature of Glen Tarff SSSI and involved active searches, which were completed at four locations with appropriate microhabitats on 15/07/2015. The searches involved surveying a variety of niches within the arboreal habitat such as dead trunks, aerial deadwood, rot holes fruiting fungi and loose bark. The hoof fungus, Fomes fomentarius, was targeted during the survey.
