Aquatic Heteroptera Dataset
Records of British Water Bugs from 1863, but mainly post 1980.
All regions of Great Britain, including significant coverage in some areas. Most records have a 6-figure grid reference but a few refer to a 10km square.
To provide distribution data about Aquatic Heteroptera in Britain and to follow on from the dataset compiled by Thomas Huxley for the 'Provisional Atlas of the British aquatic bugs' (details in Additional Information). There may be some duplication in the two datasets.
These Aquatic Heteroptera Scheme records were provided both on record cards and electronically. These have been validated by the Scheme Organiser and discussed, when necessary, with the previous organiser of the Terrestrial Scheme, Bernard Nau.
Records have been sent to the Recording Scheme by volunteers and by professional surveyors. This has involved data searches and field recording; voucher specimens have been taken for difficult species.
