NatureScot Commissioned Report 706: Site Condition Monitoring of invertebrates at Jedwater Woodlands SSSI
Twenty-two species of saproxylic beetle were identified, including one nationally scarce, a false darkling beetle Orchesia minor, and nine uncommon or local species. The uncommon southern beetle named in the SSSI citation, the oak bark beetle Dryocoetes villosus, was also found. While only one of the previously reported key species was found, the visit did add eight uncommon or local species to the list, demonstrating that this site remains under-recorded for its rich fauna.
