Historical and extant records of Honeycomb Reef Worm (Sabellaria alveolata) from around the coast of Ireland.

Collected as part of the REEHAB project (http://www.honeycombworms.org) to combine historical records with contemporary data to document changes in the distribution and abundance of S. alveolata
Records gathered from literature, targeted surveys, local conservation reports, museum specimens, personal communications by authors and by their research teams, national biodiversity information systems and validated citizen science observations
The island of Ireland
1821 - 2019
Each of the S. alveolata records were checked for spatial and taxonomic accuracy. A further 54 observations are recorded as ‘Sabellaria spp.’ as the available information did not allow for an identification to species level. Many sources reported abundances based on the semi-quantitative SACFOR scale whilst others simply noted its presence, and others still verified both its absence and presence. The result is a curated and comprehensive dataset spanning over two centuries on the past and present global distribution and abundance of S. alveolata.
