Capture Methods Records result from a range of data capture methods (and this is recorded in the 'Method' field where known).
Verification/Validation Procedures ESB verification status: All records are 'Considered correct'. The ESB has not verified individual records with the determiners, though it should be noted that the many of the determiners are recognised and respected earthworm taxonomists and ecologists. Data should therefore be checked against original sources before use in contentious circumstances. The data has not been checked using NBN Record Cleaner. The range of each of the British earthworm species is not currently known.
