UKBAP logoUK BAP priority terrestrial invertebrate species

 

A list of the UK BAP priority terrestrial invertebrate species, divided by taxonomic group into Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs and Other invertebrates (Crustaceans, Worms, Cnidaria, Bryozoans, Millipedes, Centipedes) is provided in the table below.  The list was created between 1995 and 1999, and subsequently updated in response to the Species and Habitats Review Report (PDF, 1.3Mb), published in 2007.  The table also provides details of the species' occurrences in the four UK countries, and describes whether the species was an 'original' species (on the original list created between 1995 and 1999), or was added following the 2007 review.  All original species were provided with Species Action Plans (SAPs), species statements, or are included within grouped plans or statements, whereas there are no published plans for the species added in 2007.

UK BAP priority species were those that were identified as being the most threatened and requiring conservation action under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (UK BAP).  However, as a result of devolution, and new country-level and international drivers and requirements, much of the work previously carried out by the UK BAP is now focussed at a country-level rather than a UK-level, and the UK BAP was succeeded by the 'UK Post-2010 Biodiversity Framework' in July 2012.  The UK list of priority species, however, remains an important reference source and has been used to help draw up statutory lists of priority species in EnglandNorthern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Current scientific names and commonly used synonyms derive from the Nameserver facility of the UK Species Dictionary, which is managed by the Natural History Museum.  More detailed information about the distribution and taxonomy of these species can be found using the NBN Gateway, and details of the original Species Action Plans (SAPs), generated between 1995 and 1999, can be found on the original (archived) UK BAP website, or on the BARS 1 website, which was archived in April 2012 following the launch of BARS 2.

JNCC have collated already-published information from a variety of sources for all of the UK BAP priority species, to bring these data together into a single report, or 'species account'.  All of this information is already available on either the JNCC website, the NBN Gateway, or the BARS 1  website.  Each individual species account can be accessed by selecting the name in the table below, or through the priority species accounts spreadsheet.  For more detail about the information within the species accounts, visit the Priority species accounts page>>.

* The occurrences of Agroeca cuprea and Mecopisthes peusi were updated to include Scotland in August 2011 as it was noted that the Spider Recording Scheme and the NBN gateway indicated that these species were present in Scotland.

** Note, however, that the priority species accounts for Agroeca cuprea and Mecopisthes peusi do not contain this most up-to-date information about their distribution in Scotland, as they were created in 2010, and there are currently no plans to update them.
