Dixidae (Diptera) records from Britain and Ireland to 1988
This is a small historic dataset held at the BRC. It covers the Dixidae, or meniscus midges. Data were mainly collected by Nature Conservancy Council recorders and during the 1988 Dipterists' Field Week.
Although the dataset is small, it contains records from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Recording is strongest in the NW of England and lighter or patchy elsewhere.
Records are collated in order to add to knowledge of this group, including distribution, population trends, autecology and phenology. In addition, the scheme works with all contributing recorders to raise the profile of the species group and its conservation. Sharing the data via NBN helps achieve these aims.
Data were checked as far as possible by the Scheme organiser at the time.
Many records were collected using water traps. Conversion of the data to electronic format took place at BRC.
