These dot maps show where each species has been recorded in the county at a 1km square scale. For most species there are many more dots to add so please send in your records to help us fill in the gaps. You will see particularly with the cockroaches that there are very few records; are they really this rare in the county? Some species such as Mottled Grasshopper (Myrmelleotetix maculatus) and Short-winged Conehead (Conocephalus dorsalis) are genuinly rare in the county because they are restricted to specific habitats. Others such as Meadow Grasshopper (Chorthippus parallelus) and Long-winged Conehead (Conocephalus discolor) are common and wide-spread as they are generalists and can be found in most grassland habitats.
