Beetle records from Sussex shared by various recorders, most notably Peter Hodge - the Sussex County Recorder for Beetles - who has contributed over 65,000 records to this dataset and invested huge amounts of time in verifying the Sussex beetle records. Grant funding from Natural England enabled SxBRC to conduct a large-scale consultation with Sussex beetle recorders and secure the necessary permissions to publish beetle recorders' records at full resolution under a CC-BY licence. This dataset does not include ALL Sussex beetle records held by SxBRC, only those records were we have appropriate permission to share the records under a CC-BY licence, in accordance with the NBN guidance for adding historic data to the NBN Atlas.
