Aquatic Non-Native Species Reporting Form
Please use the form to report new ANS or the range expansion of established ANS. Be as specific as possible when describing the location in order that someone may find it simply by following your directions. The report form can filled out online or printed and then mailed/faxed to Illinois Natural History Survey.
In order for the sighting to be
entered into the official state records, a voucher specimen is needed.
If possible, please place a specimen in a leak-proof plastic container with
rubbing alcohol to preserve (or, if a plant specimen, wrap in a damp paper
towel) and send with a copy of the completed report form to Illinois Natural
History Survey at the address below. Thank you for your assistance in preventing the
spread of ANS.
