The Psocoptera (outdoor species)/barkflies recording scheme was started in 2006 with the primary aim of building up as full a picture as possible of the distribution of the species in Britain and Ireland. Knowledge of distribution is necessary to determine their national and local statuses and, in particular, whether any are under sufficient threat to require conservation action. Another aim of the scheme is to discover more about the life histories of the species especially focussing on variations in different parts of Britain (e.g. it has been found that some species are single-brooded in northern Britain, double-brooded in the south).
