Notes on species accounts
Distribution accounts are adapted from the National Biodiversity Network (maps provided from NBN) and from the Provisional Atlas of the Click Beetles (Coleoptera: Elateroidea) of the British Isles, H. Mendel (1988), Institute of Terrestrial Ecology.
Biology and habitat accounts are derived from-
Alexander, K.N.A. (2002). The invertebrates of living and decaying timber in Britain and Ireland. A provisional annotated checklist. English Nature Research Reports Number 467. English Nature. Peterborough, UK.
Leseigneur, L. (1972). Coleopteres Elateridae de la Faune de France. Societe Linneenne de Lyon. Lyon, France.

I am currently looking for photographic images to use on the species account pages. I would be pleased to hear from anyone who has good quality photographs of any of the British species who would grant permission for their work to be used on this site. Full credit will be given with each work, using wording of the owners choice. I am ideally looking for photographs of card mounted specimens, however any quality images would be gratefully accepted.
