Sawfly (Symphyta) records from iRecord
This dataset contains species records for sawflies that have been verified via iRecord. Records may originate from direct addition of records to iRecord, or via other datasets that have been added to iRecord for verification purposes.
Predominantly from the UK.
Records are collated in order to add to knowledge of this group of insects, including distribution, population trends, autecology and phenology. In addition, BRC works with all contributing recorders to raise the profile of the species group and its conservation. Sharing the data via NBN helps achieve these aims.
The iRecord system has NBN record cleaner rules incorporated within it. In addition, verifiers operate further checks for outlying records (based on species, location and date). All data is subject to the same verification checking, which aims to ensure that any record that is unusual (due to time of year, location, or species identified) is queried, and only accepted if supporting evidence (photo, specimen, confirmation from additional recorders) is provided. All records are checked, and we believe that a high degree of confidence can be placed in this data; however, we cannot guarantee that all records which pass the verification checks are correct.
This dataset includes records of sawflies that have been made available for verification via iRecord. Most of these are ad hoc records from volunteer recorders, but may also include data from professionsl surveys and from citizen science projects such as bioblitzes.
