SNH Invertebrate Site Condition Monitoring 2013/14: North Rothiemurchus Pinewood SSSI
TThis 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 North Rothiemurchus Pinewood SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified invertebrate assemblage feature (Clubiona subsultans, Dryops nitidulus, Hydrochus brevis, Formica exsecta, Osmia uncinata and Coenagrion hastulatum), but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded.
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 spider feature of North Rothiemurchus Pinewood SSSI. However, other taxa were also recorded. We sampled for Clubiona subsultans by installing nest traps, a bundle of bamboo canes, on Scots pines on 13 June and collected on 1 August 2013. Dryops nitidulus and Hydrochus brevis were surveyed for on 13 and 20 June 2013 in small ponds and ditches throughout the site. We sampled Formica exsecta by looking for previous nests on 2, 8, 19 and 20 August 2013. We surveyed for Coenagrion hastulatum on 18 and 19 July 2013 at Loch an Eilein and the Polchar.
