How long before records reach species maps

Hi

 

I made a record of P.argus last week at the only remaining site in the Midlands.  How long before this record reaches the the species map?

 

Thanks

Two stages: First get it

Two stages: First get it verfied, second uploaded to Butterfly Conservation / NBN Atlas.  This first depends on vlunteers specialists.  In midsummer they will mostly be out in the field making their own observations, and there is a surge in new records.  So unless you are very lucky it could be winter before your record gets verified.  The second stage is a periodic task, run very few months / years dependin on the volume of records.

It may seem veryslow, but look at it another way.  I entered a record for a leech last week,  it could be 3 or more years before that gets looked at.
