The dataset is based on beetles collected in window- and malaise traps (5+1 per site) from approximately May to August 2019 split into two trapping periods. Window traps are marked with V (with water module leading water away from the trap) or U (normal window trap). All traps are placed in old spruce forest, or forests with near natural characterstics. The beetles are identified by Sindre Ligaard.
