Species Audit

Other invertebrates

There is no local recorder for this group and records come from visiting naturalists at a few sites. There are many fewer records compared with similar areas. Further information is still being sought. Unfortunately many of the records have either not been published or are held in private archives. Information is still being sought for all other groups. Surveys are needed for all the Priority Habitats for the full range of species.
