Nottinghamshire Moth List .... Version 5.2/Jul 2017
.....
      This updated version of the Nottinghamshire Moth List, replaces the previous version published on www.eakringbirds.com. It contains a verified and up to date (July 2017) list of all the macro moths recorded in Nottinghamshire (VC56) but the list of micro moths still remains unverified.

This species list incorporates the latest additions to the Nottinghamshire moth list, including the new scientific species names, numbering system and order of species, as used in the new 'Checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles' (D. Agassiz, S. Beavan, R. Heckford. 2013). The old Bradley and Fletcher numbers are still provided.

A history and modern Atlas of Pseudoscorpions in Nottinghamshire (VC56)
.....
      Pseudoscorpions (more commonly known as False Scorpions) represent one of the most under-recorded and infrequently studied of all our invertebrates. Many naturalists have never seen one, despite the fact that several species are described as being common and finding good, reliable information about the UK's 27 known species on the internet, is still disappointingly difficult.

This publication, brings all Nottinghamshire's post-1950 Pseudoscorpion records together into a single document and aims to produce an accurate picture of their current distribution in VC56, including species distribution maps and a 'clean up' of all records listed on the NBN Gateway.

The current status of Cryptocephalus coryli and other Cryptocephalus Leaf Beetles in Nottinghamshire
.....
      This publication brings together much of what we have researched and written about Cryptocephalus leaf beetles on this website.

After recording, studying and rearing most of Nottinghamshire's seven resident species in captivity for several years, we thought that bringing our findings together into a single pdf document would perhaps be useful for those wishing to undertake further study.

We have also took this opportunity to provide up to date distribution maps for each of the seven Cryptocephalus species presently occurring in VC56.

The size variation and age ratios found within the larval population of the Glow Worm during Autumn
.....
      This recently published pdf file, documents the results of the research of Martin Dale and ourselves, into the size variation and age ratios within the larval population of the Glow Worm, as part of our Project 2: Phase 2. research of a few years ago.

The text remains the same as found elsewhere on the website, but being published as a pdf file, makes the data and research much easier to access on tablet or smart phone.

Some notes and observations on the bioluminescence exhibited by the larva of the Glow Worm in captivity
.....
      Originally published on this website back in December 2012, this publication is a simple conversion from web page to pdf file, documenting the results of our research determining the various aspects of bioluminescent activity in larvae of the Glow Worm (Lampyris noctiluca) in captivity. Project 1: Phase 1. 2012 was conducted by Trevor and Dilys Pendleton and Martin Dale.

A modern Atlas of Nottinghamshire Harvestmen
.....
      This modern Atlas of Nottinghamshire Harvestmen, broadly follows the same format as used in our other 'A modern Atlas of ' publications.

Its aim is to provide an up to date and accurate modern day Atlas of species, including short accounts on range, distribution and habitat of Nottinghamshire's Opilione (Harvestmen) fauna.

An Atlas of Nottinghamshire Woodlice - First revision October 2015
.....
      Despite the near certainty of at least two species of Woodlouse being present in every single square kilometer of the county, the recording of these particularly common and easily accessible invertebrates in Nottinghamshire has always been limited.

Even when the great Victorian naturalists were at their peak, collecting and recording our local invertebrate fauna over a century ago, virtually none of them seemed to have any real interest in Woodlice and there were just eight species on the Nottinghamshire list by the turn of this century.

This first revision continues to produce up to date distribution maps of all the Woodlice recorded in the county over recent years and includes data for Porcellio spinicornis, found for the first time in 2015.

A Modern Atlas of Nottinghamshire Centipedes - Second revision October 2015
.....
      Thanks to Tony Barber of the British Myriapod and Isopod Group, it has recently been possible for us to produce and publish, a long overdue modern atlas of Nottinghamshire Centipedes.

Records sent to us by the BMIG, coupled with our own records, means that we actually have a good picture of species distribution within Nottinghamshire and probably much better than many other Midland counties.

This second revision includes the species account and distribution map for Cryptops anomalans, recently found for the first time in Nottinghamshire, plus a complete update of all distribution maps.

Nottinghamshire Moth List .... Version 3.0/Sep 2015

      Version 3.0 of the Nottinghamshire Moth List, follows on from Versions 1.0 and 2.0, which were previously published on www.eakringbirds.com.

This species list incorporates the latest additions to the Nottinghamshire moth list, using the new scientific species names, numbering system and order of species, as used in the new 'Checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles' (D. Agassiz, S. Beavan, R. Heckford. 2013). The old Bradley and Fletcher numbers are still provided.

A Modern Atlas of Nottinghamshire Millpedes - Second revision April 2015
.....
      Thanks to Tony Barber of the British Myriapod and Isopod Group, it has recently been possible for us to produce and publish, a long overdue modern atlas of Nottinghamshire Millipedes.

Records sent to us by the BMIG, coupled with our own records, means that we actually have a good picture of species distribution within Nottinghamshire and probably much better than many other Midland counties.

This first revision, includes the species account and distribution map for Ophyiulus pilosus, which had been accidentally omitted from the original publication.

An Atlas of Nottinghamshire Ladybirds
.....
      Ladybirds include some of our most popular and easily recognised beetles.

Their often bright colouration also makes them favourites will both adults and children alike, so many common species quickly become familiar to people from a very early age. As a consequence, they are often well recorded and our knowledge of Ladybird distribution in Nottinghamshire, is extremely good compared to the majority of beetles.

This Atlas of Nottinghamshire Ladybirds produces up to date distribution maps of all the Coccinellidae (Ladybirds) recorded in the county over recent years. No Atlas can ever be complete, but this work is as comprehensive as is possible for us to do at the present time.

The current status and distribution of Nottinghamshire Longhorn Beetles
.....
      The Cerambycidae represent some of Nottinghamshire's most impressive beetles. Commonly known as Longhorn Beetles, there are nearly 70 known UK species, including some accidental imports.

This Atlas attempts to produce up to date distribution maps of all the Longhorn beetles recorded in the county over recent years, but does list all the species we can trace as having been recorded in the county.

The current status and distribution of Psychidae Moths in Nottinghamshire
.....
      This second revision of our original 2008 survey results of Nottinghamshire's under recorded Psychidae moths, provides a thorough update on their current county status.

There are new distribution maps for all eight known species which occur in Nottinghamshire, plus additional photographs.

Since the 2008 edition, three more species have been added to the county list and there are results from each of the 80 sites surveyed.
