I see the nbn map is rather sparse for Trichoptera.
Lack of records is possibly an artefact of the lack of a readily-available guide to the adults - I think the caseless larval keys are still available from the FBA, but Macan's 1973 key to adults (which is not always easy to use) is out of print as is the case-bearing larval key. The FSC's fold-out AIDGAP guide to adults is good but only covers a selection of species.
Almost (but not quite) a grumble about key texts going out of print... :)
As far as I know the data from the national recording scheme for caddisflies is not yet available via NBN, hence the lack of records on the maps. A new key to adults by the scheme organiser, Ian Wallace, is being prepared but not sure when publication is likely. The scheme website is at:
Entomologist and biological recorder
Ta for that - I didn't know a new adult caddis key was on its way; it'll end up on my shopping list no doubt. As it happens, I'm in the early stages of writing a key to UK Chrysomelidae, hopefully pitched at AIDGAP level, and am just about to start as coordinator of the Chrysomelid Recording Scheme. Should be interesting,
Well done for taking on the chrysomelid scheme! I think Mike Cox had started drafting some keys hadn't he? Would be great to have a good ID guide to these beetles, many of which are quite distinctive (plus some that are very tricky of course!).
I haven't seen any draft keys, but have made a very preliminary first draft and will be meeting up with Helen Roy in Feb. After that I predict a lot more time spent in the Hampshire County biological collections... Once there's a scheme webpage to link to, I suspect I'll also be asking for a 2nd badge :)
The new key to adults will appear in the Royal Entomological Society and will be by Peter Barnard and Emma Ross not me!. I am beavering away on the distribtuion data for the NBN and going well to have it up there next year first half then there will be an atlas and then some web site pictures ... In the meantme happy to help with ids - and get the resultant data (data base stands at 238,000 entries)
