Abstract

Field investigations of the invertebrate fauna of the
island of Mingulay in the Outer Hebrides were
carried out during the summer of 2013. The
resulting species list also includes published
records from the island prior to our visit. A total of
303 terrestrial invertebrate species are listed, over
60% of those we found were new to the island. The
vast majority have been previously recorded from
the better studied and more accessible islands of
Barra and South Uist. There are 18 species (3
coleoptera, 14 diptera and 1 hymenoptera) that
appear to be first records for the Outer Hebrides.
The most interesting finds were generally from cliff
seepages and recently vacated puffin burrows.
These and other interesting finds, including species
of conservation concern, are discussed in more
detail.
