Vädret på Station Linné

Station Linné har en unik väderstatistik som sträcker sig ända tillbaka till 1964. Uppgifterna i statistiken omfattar flera parametrar, som t ex nederbörd, vind, mark- och lufttemperatur.

För Station Linnés gästforskare ingår detta som en extraresurs. Övriga kan köpa nämnda väderdata för en engångsavgift på 1 500:- och sedan 300:-/månad som önskas. Kontakta oss gärna så berättar vi mer.

In the first-tier sorting, a bulk sample is split into 35 different insect orders, suborders or comparable units. Other groups than the insects are sorted as suitable.

Specimens, once identified by the assorter, are placed in 7 ml (h = 50 mm, Ø = 16 mm) flat-bottom vials made from transparent polystyrene by Sarstedt. Vials are tucked in transparent polycarbonate racks with 24 (4 x 6) fitting apertures each. Two racks are placed in accordance to two printed schemes which refers to where the different target taxa shall be placed (see picture above). Lepidoptera specimens are put aside for drying on a paper towel and, when they have become completely dry, are stored in plastic containers with tightly fitting lids. At the pictures upper left are some filled vials. 

 

COLLEMBOLA Lubbock, 1870 Springtails/Hoppstjärtar (414)
More than a thousand samples, abundant in Malaise Traps despite lack of flight ability. None yet treated.

PROTURA Silvestri, 1907 Coneheads/Trevfotingar (4)
Not recorded, belongs to soil fauna, flightless and not very mobile.

DIPLURA Börner, 1904 Two-pronged Bristletails/Larvborstsvansar (5)

Several samples. None yet treated.

ODONATA Fabricius, 1793 Dragonflies/Trollsländor (64)
A few samples, generally rare in Malaise traps, mainly because of very good eyesight and maneuvering capacity. Most identified by Rasmus Hovmöller and Sibylle Häggqvist.

PLECOPTERA Burmeister, 1839 Stoneflies/Bäcksländor (37)Several samples. Treated or under treatment by Anders Göthberg.

BLATTODEA Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1882 Cockroaches/Kackerlackor (43)
Hundreds of samples. Primarily indoors except a single widespread species.

DERMAPTERA DeGeer, 1773 Earwigs/Tvestjärtar (4)
Hundreds of samples. Common, including flightless life stages and species. Some identified in a student project by Johannes Hallenbrant. Ref: Hallenbrant 2013

ORTHOPTERA Linnaeus, 1758 sensu stricto (Saltatoria Latreille, 1817) Grasshoppers & Crickets/Hopprätvingar (41)
Hundreds of samples. Common, including flightless life stages. None yet treated.

"PSOCOPTERA" Latreille, 1810 Barklice & Booklice/Stövsländor (82)
Hundreds of samples. Common, including flightless life stages and species. Many treated by Bo W Svensson. Ref: utilised but not explicitly referred to in Svensson 2010.

PHTHIRAPTERA Haeckel, 1896 Lice/Djurlöss (254)
Several samples. Not entirely uncommon in the traps, despite being flightless and not very mobile. Vertebrate hosts accidentally caught in traps are not a sufficient explanation for this number, instead we have to assume that they have entered spontaneously climbing up from vertebrates (especially Roe deer Capreolus capreolus) taking shelter by the trap. None yet treated.

THYSANOPTERA Haliday, 1836 Thrips/Tripsar (122)
Hundreds of samples. Many identified by Sverre Kobro and Carl-Axel Gertsson. One species new to Sweden. Ref: Kobro 2011.

STERNORRHYNCHA Amyot & Serville, 1825 Plant lice/Växtlöss (775)
More than thousand samples. Common, including flighless species and life stages. Most Psylloidea and several others treated or under treatment by Carl-Axel Gertsson. Ref Gertsson 2010, 2011

AUCHENORRHYNCHA Duméril, 1805 Leafhoppers/Stritar (422)
Hundreds of samples. Common, including flightless life stages and species. Many treated by Gösta Gillerfors, some under treatment by Carl-Axel Gertsson.

HETEROPTERA Latreille, 1810 Bugs/Skinnbaggar (640)
Hundreds of samples. Common, including flightless life stages and species. Treated or under treatment by Carl-Cedric Coulianos. In spite of being a relatively well-known group which is not regarded as specifically targetted by malaise traps, at least one new species to the country has been found in the material.

MEGALOPTERA Latreille, 1802 Alderflies/Vattennätvingar (5)
Very few samples. Some treated by Johannes Bergsten.

RAPHIDIOPTERA MacLeay, 1821 Snakeflies/Ormhalssländor (4)

More than a thousand samples; an intermediate stage in sorting.

BRACHYCERA Zetterstedt, 1842 Flies/Flugor (4765)

Brachycera excl. PhoridaeSeveral samples; an intermediate stage in sorting.
Brachycera excl. Phoridae, Sepsidae, Asilidae & Syrphidae. More than a thousand samples; a formerly used intermediate stage in sorting.

MYRIAPODA Latreille, 1896 Centipedes & Millipedes/Mångfotingar (97)
Several samples, in spite of lack of flying capacity. Many climb trees and other vertical surfaces. No samples yet treated.

ISOPODA Latreille, 1817 Woodlice/Gråsuggor (29 terrestrial spp)
Several samples, in spite of lack of flying capacity; woodlice mainly belong to soil fauna and are sensitive to dehydration but still are well-known to climb trees and other vertical surfaces. No samples yet treated.

Very few samples; unexpected since sandhoppers lack flying capacity and stay close to water. None yet treated.

ARANEAE Clerck, 1758 Spindlar/Spiders (745)
Numerous samples, in spite of lack of flying capacity. Many climb trees and other vertical surfaces, and of course spiders are often deliberately wind-spread. A large fraction has been sorted into families and are under treatment by Fredrik Arvidsson in a student project.

OPILIONES Sundevall, 1833 Harvestmen/Lockespindlar (20)
Hundreds of samples, in spite of lack of flying capacity. Many climb trees and other vertical surfaces. None yet treated.

More than a thousand samples, in spite of lack of flying capacity. Frequently phoretic with and parasitic on insects. Some under treatment by Jeanette Stålstedt. Ref: Stålstedt 2014.

ANNELIDA
few samples, in spite of lack of flying capacity, more than 200 specimens found this far. It is well known that earthworms sometimes climb trees and other vertical surfaces, but the extent of this, and its meaning, is little known. No samples yet treated.

GASTROPODA
Hundreds of samples, in spite of lack of flying capacity. Of course many snails climb trees and other vertical surfaces. No samples yet treated.

MAMMALIA
single sample, unexpected mainly because of large size and good maneuvering capacity. Identified as Northern Bat, Eptesicus nilssoni.

AVES
single sample, unexpected mainly because of large size and good maneuvering capacity. Identified as Yellowhammer, Emberiza citrinella.

LEPIDOSAURIA
Some very few samples, unexpected mainly because of lack of flying capacity. Identified as Viviparous Lizard, Zootoca (or Lacerta) vivipara.

AMPHIBIA
Some very few samples, unexpected mainly because of lack of flying capacity. Identified as Smooth Newt, Lissotriton (or Triturus) vulgaris.

Remarks For each taxon the total number of known species in Sweden are given in parentheses (including accidentals). Taxa considered non-monophyletic are in quotes. Note that the classification given here is not necessarily a state-of-the-art valid classification in all details, but represent the actual units in SMTP sorting.
