About the scheme

The recording scheme can be contacted via the Biological Records Centre. Sawfly records can be added via the iRecord website and app, from where they are available to the national scheme and are shared via the National Biodiversity Network Atlas. A network of sawfly recorders is active on Facebook and information about the species can be found on The Sawflies (Symphyta) of Britain and Ireland, maintained by Andrew Green.

BRC is working with a growing network of county sawfly recorders to verify records for the scheme, and has produced a list of resources for sawfly recorders.
