SNH Invertebrate Site Condition Monitoring 2013/14: Ben Lomond SSSI
This dataset was gathered as part of a Scottish Natural Heritage contract in 2013/14. It provides the results of invertebrate surveys designed to inform Site Condition Monitoring at Ben Lomond SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified invertebrate assemblage feature (Erebia epiprhon, Boloria euphrosyne and Nematus reticulatus), but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded
Ben Lomond SSSI.
We have a very high level of confidence in this dataset. Where necessary, rare specimens were compared against reference collections, those held in the National Museums Scotland collection and identities confirmed with experts.
Surveys targeted the invertebrate assemblage feature of Ben Lomond SSSI. However, other taxa were also recorded. We sampled adult Nematus reticulatus on 15 June 2013 by sweep netting along a transect attempting to cover a representative area of upland habitats around Ben Lomond. One sweep consisted of moving the net back and forth through the vegetation ahead whilst walking slowly, covering approximately a 10 x 1 m section of ground. We surveyed for Erebia epiprhon and Boloria euphrosyne on 9, 10, 13 and 14 July 2013 by sweep netting in areas of suitable habitat.
