The slugs of Britain and Ireland form a well-studied fauna of economic importance. They include many widespread European species that are introduced elsewhere (at least half of the 36 currently recorded British species are established in North America, for example). To test the contention that the British and Irish fauna consists of 36 species, and...
Available online at http://naturalhistory.museumwales.ac.uk/molluscatypes. The Mollusca collections held at Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales contain some 3200 type specimens, around 350 of which are holotypes or lectotypes. This website aims to make these important specimens and the associated data available to a wide audience, including s...
Benthic environmental assessments associated with oil and gas explorations along the UK Atlantic Margin have revealed deficiencies in the taxonomy of many deep-water taxa. Amongst the Bivalvia the protobranch genera Yoldiella and Portlandia are particularly complex. This study presents tabular keys, shell and gut loop descriptions for those taxa li...
The Hemiptera are a large and diverse order of exopterogote insects, which occur throughout the world. There are more than 50,000 described species in around100 families. The Hemiptera is now divided into 3 suborders: Heteroptera (true bugs), Sternorrhyncha (scale insects, aphids, whiteflies, psyllids) and Auchenorrhyncha (leafhoppers, planthoppers...
The leafhoppers comprise by far the largest family within the Hemiptera, with approximately 19,500 described species in over 40 subfamilies of which the subfamily Cicadellinae comprises around 2,300 species in around 330 genera. The availability of taxo-nomic monographs on the group and subsequent publications has made the Cicadellinae a relatively...
Advancements in digital camera technology, microscope optics and image capture software have allowed researchers to create more detailed and higher quality images than ever before. Digital imaging using light microscopy at high magnifi - cations does, however, have its limitations. Features that may be diagnostic for species identifi cation can oft...
The progress in taxonomic knowledge of the sharpshooter leafhoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Cicadellinae) over the past 150 years is described. The availability of taxonomic monographs of the group has allowed an attempt to make digital images of the world fauna and to progress towards a web-based taxonomy.
Freshwater Diatom Flora of Britain and Ireland is a major project aiming to compile a web-based diatom flora and comprehensive taxonomic review of diatoms from freshwater, brackish and subaerial habitats in the British Isles.
