Aderyn :: Distribution Maps
Have you ever wondered how widespread a species is across Wales. This page allows you to select a species or an entire taxon group and display a 10km distribution map of that species or group, based on data held by LERC Wales. You can then select a 10km square and see a 1km distribution map (except for sensitive species).
Use one of the options below to select the species or group you are interested in.
Maps and data are not to be used for any commercial purposes.
