These surveys targeted the notified invertebrate assemblage feature (Donacia aquatica and Protolampra sobrina), but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded.
River Spey - Insh 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 invertebrate assemblage feature of River Spey - Insh Marshes SSSI. However, other taxa were also recorded. We sampled Donacia aquatica by sweeping emergent and bankside vegetation of Loch Insh on 9 and 11 June 2013. We surveyed for Protolampra sobrina using a Heath trap on the evenings of 31 July, 8, 14 and 20 August 2013 in birch woodland surrounding Loch Insh.
