    Annotated Checklist to the Beetles of VC55

    Graham Finch, County Recorder for Coleoptera, has updated the Annotated Checklist to the Beetles of VC55 (Leicestershire & Rutland). 

    The checklist is an attempt to provide as near a complete catalogue of the beetles of VC55 as is practicable. By 2012 a total of beetle 4072 species had been recorded in the U.K. while approximately 2000 species have been recorded in VC55 to date. We now have over 73,000 records in the database (to March 2017) covering a time span of recording of over 200 years. Although not primarily an identification guide, the checklist is the official record of all species recorded locally. You can download the full list and all the other County checklists at:
