Trichoptera of Ireland dataset now mapped online

June 25, 2013

The first output of my early efforts to collate all the published records of Trichoptera species in Ireland  (with sufficient accompanying data including species name, date, grid reference, recorder name and determiner name) is now available on-line through the National Biodiversity Data Centre website at http://maps.biodiversityireland.ie/#/DataSet/165/General. The dataset contains 73 records of 44 species from 39 locations across Ireland.

I have a number of references still to find and add, and hopefully future publications will provide further distributional data for caddisflies in Ireland.

If you have, or know of any, references that include such distributional data, I would be delighted to hear from you.

Thanks to Dr Eugenie Regan and the National Biodiversity Data Centre for their help in getting this dataset on-line and made available to all.
