Bee, wasp and ant (Hymenoptera: Aculeata) records verified via iRecord
Bees, Wasps and Ants (Aculeata) records from iRecord. This dataset contains records for Bees, Wasps and Ants, the majority of which have been verified by the BWARS (Bees, Wasps and Ants Recording Society) iRecord Verification Team. Records may originate from direct addition of records to iRecord, or via other datasets that have been added to iRecord for verification purposes.
Records are collated in order to add to knowledge of this group of insects, including distribution, population trends, autecology and phenology.
The iRecord system has NBN record cleaner rules incorporated within it. In addition, verifiers apply further checks for outlying records (based on species, location and date).
This dataset includes all verified records of aculeate Hymenoptera 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 professional surveys and from citizen science projects such as bioblitzes. All data is subject to 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, the we cannot guarantee that all records which pass the verification checks are correct.
