Silphidae Recording Scheme - data verified via iRecord
This dataset contains species records for carrion, burying and sexton beetles and relatives (Coleoptera: Silphidae) that have been verified by the recording scheme. Records are from datasets made available for verification via iRecord - these records may originate from direct contribution of records to iRecord, or via other datasets that have been shared with iRecord for verification purposes.
Most records are recent, since 2012, but records from older datasets that have been uploaded recently for verification purposes will also be included.

Records are collated in order to add to knowledge of this group of insects, including distribution, population trends, autecology and phenology. In addition, the scheme works with all contrubuting recorders to raise the profile of the species group and its conservation. Sharing the data via NBN helps achieve these aims.
The recording scheme operates checks for outlying records (based on species, location and date). The route by which data arrives for verification in iRecord can vary, and comes from recorders with a wide range of experience, but the same verification process is applied to all data and the scheme believes that the dataset provided to NBN is of high quality.
