During the reporting period from January 1 through June 30, 1992, 305 species were observed in Nebraska. The reports came from 56 counties, and ranged from one-date observations to the six-month range. For comparison, there were 301 species recorded in 1991 with reports from 34 counties. The number of counties was increased significantly in 1992, particularly in the western part of Nebraska.

Records covering the six-month period, or several dates over a shorter span of time, are presented in Table 1. The same species are listed on facing pages (except for page 136) for two groups of counties, which are arranged from west to east and north to south. The left page starts with the northwest region, and the right page ends with the southeast region. Shaded cells involve species requiring documentation by the NOU Records Committee, but for which none was provided.

A section following Table 1 gives documentation on rare species, or those observed outside the usual range or season. Other sections include more limited county reports than are included in the table, and a list of reporters and observers, as well as the number of species observed in each county.
