Biodiversity data mining from Argus-eyed citizens: the first illegal introduction record of Lepomis macrochirus macrochirus Rafinesque, 1819 in Japan based on Twitter information.

Miyazaki Y, Teramura A, Senou H - Zookeys (2016)

Bottom Line: The specimens and photographs were initially reported on the internet-based social networking site, Twitter.Two specimens of Carassius auratus, including an aquarium form, were also reported at the same locality and date, suggesting that the illegal introductions originated from an aquarium release.Our report demonstrates an example of web data mining in the discipline of Citizen Science.

ABSTRACT
An apparent illegal introduction of Lepomis macrochirus macrochirus from Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, is reported based on a juvenile specimen and a photograph of two adults collected on 14 June 2015 and deposited in the Kangawa Prefectural Museum of Natural History. The specimens and photographs were initially reported on the internet-based social networking site, Twitter. Two specimens of Carassius auratus, including an aquarium form, were also reported at the same locality and date, suggesting that the illegal introductions originated from an aquarium release. Our report demonstrates an example of web data mining in the discipline of Citizen Science.

Figure 4: A portion of gut components of Lepomismacrochirusmacrochirus collected from the outdoor pool of Chigasaki Park, Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, on 14 June 2015. Dragonfly nymphs, Sympetrum sp., were included.

Mentions: We also identified some of the gut contents of an adult Lepomismacrochirusmacrochirus as dragonfly nymphs of the genus Sympetrum (Fig. 4). This identification follows Ishida (1996) and is based on the following characters: laterally long and inverted trapezoid head, large and prominent compound eyes, and presence of lateral spines in abdominal segments 8–9.
