Distribution Atlas of European Trichoptera (DAET)
A little about the history of the book
Work on the Atlas started off with contacting 129 known caddisfly experts from Europe. 83 of these experts compiled and submitted data or sent their own written records or documents. Additionally, we included data from the following data collections: ZOBODAT of the Upper Austrian State Museum (Austria), National Museum Liverpool (Great Britain), OPIE Benthos (France), CSCF-Info Fauna (Switzerland), Natural Science Museum Bergamo (Italy), Senckenberg Research Institute (Frankfurt, Germany) and National Museum of Natural History (Luxembourg).
Since 2011, more than 630,000 occurrence records (about 450,000 adult data) of European caddisflies contributed by 83 Trichoptera experts and the authors (together they form the DAET Consortium) have been compiled. We are very grateful to the following persons and their support:
On 891 pages, you will find information on how the DAET database and the maps were created, a total of 1,583 distribution maps, a systematic list and a species index, which is also a table of map contents. In the book, point records of caddisflies are illustrated on the maps and for the first time provide a comprehensive overview of the distribution patterns of European Trichoptera families, species and sub-species. These maps serve as a valuable base for future analyses, conservation and management priorities of this fascinating insect order.

Errata & Addenda
Such a work, composed of heterogeneous sources and formats, always carries the risk of containing mistakes. Some members of the Consortium have already pointed to problems, that were not detected in the quality checks. In order to keep the book a reliable working basis, Errata & Addenda will be available here as a downloadable pdf file. You can print them out and put them in the book, or cut and paste parts.
