County and Regional Recorders

The aim of publishing this list is to encourage the submission of records to the relevant county or regional Coleoptera recorder. Recorders should have access to a reasonably complete and up-to-date database of species records for their area, and be able to advise when a record is new for a county or vice-county. They may not be able, or willing, to check identifications. Records generally should be submitted in systematic order, with full details of locality (including grid reference), date, numbers and habitat. You should also indicate which identification keys were used, as many keys are now badly out-of-date (both in terms of nomenclature as well as missing species) and this can obviously affect how your records are to be interpreted.

It is courteous to enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope if you require an acknowledgement.

Offers to fill currently vacant positions will be appreciated. It would help if recorders could liaise with each other to agree their respective boundaries (vice-county boundaries are recommended). This list will be updated periodically so please advise of any corrections .
