Topic: Updated butterfly rules

Butterfly Conservation and Biological Records Centre have updated their butterfly rules for Record Cleaner. The changes are only in the ten km distribution rules which:

    * make use of the latest available data collected from 2005 - 2019
    * employ the latest names and TVK from the UK Species Inventory

The updated rules are now available to download and use in the NBN Record Cleaner

If you are using Windows 10, please follow these steps to update the rules:
1. Uninstall Record Cleaner
2. Delete the folder C:\Users\your_username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\NBNRecordCleaner
3. Reinstall Record Cleaner
4. Copy and install the latest species list
5. Start Record Cleaner and re-import all the new rulesets

The master species list has not been updated. The latest version is from July 2021, which can be downloaded from here: https://forums.nbn.org.uk/viewtopic.php?id=7744. All going well I should have an update to the master species list next week.

The files can be updated manually on a fresh install of the NBN Record Cleaner. The zip file contains Graham French's original instructions on how to do this. See this forum post for more details https://forums.nbn.org.uk/viewtopic.php?id=6754.

Please let me know if you have any problems,

Best wishes, Sophie
