SNH Invertebrate Site Condition Monitoring 2013/14: Whitlaw Mosses 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 Whitlaw Mosses SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified Symphyta assemblage feature (Nematus monticola, Phyllocolpa acutiserra and Phyllocolpa carinifrons), but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded.
Whitlaw Mosses 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 Whitlaw Mosses SSSI. However, other taxa were also recorded. We sampled adult sawflies using sweep net transects. 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 Nether Whitlaw Moss and Murder Moss on 22 July 2013 and Beanrig Moss, Blackpool Moss and Murder Moss on 8 June 2014.
