The dataset includes information on the specimens and photographic records that are part of this inventory. Details of the study are found in P. da Silva, et al. The insect community of an endangered habitat: coastal dunes at Point Reyes National Seashore, California, U.S.A., which has been accepted by the Pan Pacific Entomologist and will appear in Volume 99, Number 1, to be published in March, 2023.
