CHANGES - 2009
 
 

15th July 2009 - Links from known host plant species to NBN distribution maps added for all Hymenoptera

Links have been added from known host plant species to NBN interactive distribution maps, where they exist, for all species of Hymenoptera. For species of sawflies without NBN distribution maps, these host plant species distribution maps will inform the user of the potential range of the sawfly. Where both sawfly and host species maps exist, these highlight just how few sawfly records are recorded by the NBN relative to the numbers of host species records, particularly where the sawfly is monophagous (recorded on a single host plant species). Additionally the host distribution maps provide location information on where the sawfly might be sought.

14th July 2009 - Links from known host plant species to NBN distribution maps added for all Coleoptera

Links have been added from known host plant species to NBN interactive distribution maps, where they exist, for all species of Coleoptera. For species of beetles without NBN distribution maps, these host plant species distribution maps will inform the user of the potential range of the beetle. Where both beetle and host species maps exist, these highlight just how few beetle records are recorded by the NBN relative to the numbers of host species records, particularly where the beetle is monophagous (recorded on a single host plant species). Additionally the host distribution maps provide location information on where the beetle might be sought.

8th July 2009 - Additional links to the Lepidoptera Dissection Group website added.

Additional links have been added, where they exist, to the images of male and female gentitalia on the Lepidoptera Dissection Group's website. Where the male or female genitalia are not currently illustrated by the Lepidoptera Dissection Group, there is an option to check for updates in the event that an illustration has been added subsequent to posting the moth species page on this website.

14th June 2009 - Links added for illustrated adults in UKMoths

Links have been added for illustrated adults in UKMoths, where they exist. Where an adult moth is not currently illustrated in UKMoths, there is an option to check for updates in the event that an illustration of an adult has been added to UKMoths subsequent to posting the moth species page on this website.

9th June 2009 - Links from known host plant species to NBN distribution maps added for all Diptera

Links have been added from known host plant species to NBN distribution maps, where they exist, for all species of Diptera. For species of flies without NBN distribution maps, these host plant species distribution maps will inform the user of the potential range of the fly. Where both fly and host species maps exist, these highlight just how few fly records are recorded by the NBN relative to the numbers of host species records, particularly where the fly is monophagous (recorded on a single host plant species), e.g. Holly leaf miner and Holly. Additionally the host distribution maps provide location information on where the fly might be sought.

15th May 2009 - Links to the Lepidoptera Dissection Group website added.

Links have been added, where they exist, to the images of male and female gentitalia on the Lepidoptera Dissection Group's website.
