There are currently over 11,000 records on the SBIS database and species-based card indexes covering published records (mainly from TSNS). Guidance on identification and recording can be found on the British Bugs website.

Priorities are to produce up-to-date county checklists on RECORDER and lists of county-level RDB species.
