Soldierflies and Allies Recording Scheme - data verified via iRecordLSID
This dataset contains species records for the 11 familes of Diptera covered by the recording scheme, and that have been verified by the recording scheme. Records are from datasets made available via the iRecord verification process - these records may originate from direct addition of records to iRecord, or via other datasets that have been added to iRecord for verification purposes.
The attributes of each record may vary depending on the dataset from which the record comes. Zero abundance records are not included.

Records are collated in order to add to knowledge of this group of insects, including distribution, population trends, autecology and phenology. In addition, the scheme works with all contrubuting recorders to raise the profile of the species group and its conservation. Sharing the data via NBN helps achieve these aims.
The iRecord system has NBN record cleaner rules incorporated within it. In addition, the scheme operates further checks for outlying records (based on species, location and date). The route by which data arrives for verification in iRecord can vary, and comes from recorders with a wide range of experience, but the same verification process is applied to all data and the scheme believes that the dataset provided to NBN is of high quality.
This dataset includes all records of the relevant Diptera families that have been made available for verification via iRecord. Most of these are ad hoc records from volunteer recorders, but may also include data from professionsl surveys and from citizen science projects such as bioblitzes. All data is subject to the same verification checking, which aims to ensure that any record that is unusual (due to time of year, location, or species identified) is queried, and only accepted if supporting evidence (photo, specimen, confirmation from additional recorders) is provided. All records are checked, and the scheme believes that a high degree of confidenmce can be placed in this data; however, the scheme cannot guarantee that all records which pass the verification checks are correct.
