SNH Invertebrate Site Condition Monitoring 2013/14: Eastern Cairngorms 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 Eastern Cairngorms SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified invertebrate assemblage feature (Bolitophagus reticulatus, Formica exsecta, Zygaena exulans and Vertigo geyeri), but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded.
Eastern Cairngorms 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 Eastern Cairngorms SSSI. However, other taxa were also recorded. We sampled Bolitophagus reticulatus by searching dead birch trees with hoof fungus (Fomes fomentarius) on 2 July 2013 along Glen Quoich. We surveyed Formica exsecta by searching for nests in Glen Quoich and Forest of Mar on 3 and 4 July 2013. Vertigo geyeri was surveyed by collecting 1L litter samples on 3 and 4 July 2013. We sampled Zygaena exulans on 18, 19 and 20 June 2014 on the lower slopes of Ben Avon.
