This digital dataset was created by the BRMC (the data provider) by digitizing record cards passed to it from the estate of Beryl (E.B.) Rands. Funding has so far allowed only records from the eastern portion of the county to be digitized. It is hoped to be able to digitize the cards for the remainder of the county when resources permit
Observations were verified by the then County Recorder for Mollusca. Some specimens were also determined by national experts. Digitization queries have also been resolved with the assistance of the current County Mollusc Recorder. Although some unintentional inaccuracies may be present, none are currently known.
