Quality control

Data do not have comprehensive geographic or taxonomic coverage. They may not have been reassessed in light of recent taxonomic splits or aggregations, and should be checked against original sources if there is doubt. Galls are usually identified from the gall, not on detailed examination of the causer. Aecial stages of Puccinia on nettle are recorded as P. urticata. Claviceps purpurea sclerotia on Poaceae are recorded under the binomial (not as var. purpurea). Taphrina betulina records have not been examined to exclude phytoplasma galls. Tremella mesenterica records have not been based on host identification. Pleurocerus pseudoplatani records are based on macro characters unless otherwise stated. HBRG endeavours to achieve maximum accuracy in our data. Any errors of which we are aware are listed with corrections in the file www.hbrg.org.uk/Dataset/Errors_HBRG_NBN_Atlas_datasets.xlsx
