Major dataset update

August 4, 2015

Following a dramatic overhaul of the National Biodiversity Data Centre website, additional records have been added to the Trichoptera (caddisflies) of Ireland dataset and mapped on the biodiversity maps system. This update brings the total number of records of Trichoptera from published sources to 751, including both larvae and adults.

The following list includes the author(s) and year of publication, while the full reference can be found by clicking on the References tab above:

Fahy (1972)

Healy et al. (1982)

McGoff & Irvine (2009)

O’Connor (2013)]

O’Connor & Norton (1976)

O’Connor et al. (2013)

Details on the dataset can be accessed on the NBDC website here.

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.

I am a Dublin-based freshwater ecologist looking to gather information on the Trichoptera (Caddisflies) of Ireland. I will soon be adding a list of publications with information on the distribution and (aut-)ecology of caddisflies. If you have, or know of, any references that I am missing, I would be delighted if you would bring them to my attention. If you can provide me with a copy, so much the better. I am particularly interested in references relating to Ireland, but those referring to Britain would also be most welcome.
