Nezara viridula records held by the Royal Horticultural Society
The data set consists of records for the Southern Green Shield Bug (Nezara viridula), also known as the Green Vegetable Bug, for the UK gathered by the Royal Horticultural Society, from members of the Society, the general public, and those submitted (prior to 2014) to the Natural History Museum (NHM), London and Food and Environmental Research Agency (FERA).
Data are from 2003 onwards when Nezara viridula is though to have first breed out of doors in the UK.
The survey aims for UK coverage. A majority of records are at 1km or better resolution.
Data have been collected as part of the research work of the Royal Horticultural Society to establish the distribution and spread of Nezara viridula which probably became established in the UK in 2003.
Data quality is good. Records received direct to the RHS are verified by RHS entomologists based on samples or photographs. Records received by NHM and FERA were verified by staff at those institutions.
Records of Nezara viridula have been collected via Royal Horticultural Society Garden Advice service (predominantly from RHS members), from the NHM Advisory Service, FERA and the published literature.
