SNH Invertebrate Site Condition Monitoring 2013/14: Lismore Lochs 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 Lismore Lochs SSSI. These surveys targeted the notified invertebrate assemblage feature (Donacia aquatica and Eurodryas aurinia), but other invertebrate taxa were also recorded.
Lismore Lochs 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 Lismore Lochs SSSI. However, other taxa were also recorded. We sampled Donacia aquatica by sweeping emergent and bankside vegetation of the three lochs. Eurodryas aurinia was sampled by searching for their communal larval webs amongst regularly inundated vegetation. We completed the surveys on 16 and 17 June 2013
