SNH Invertebrate Site Condition Monitoring 2013/14: Loch Lubnaig Marshes 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 Loch Lubnaig Marshes SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified Diptera assemblage feature (Tetanocera freyi and Cordilura atrata), but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded.
Loch Lubnaig Marshes 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 Diptera assemblage feature of Loch Lubnaig Marshes SSSI. However, other taxa were also recorded. We sampled adult Diptera on 3 June 2013 by sweep netting along a transect attempting to cover a representative area of wetland habitats around Loch Lubnaig. 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.
