4 Brian Eversham 7017 25th September, 2017 2017 has been good fun so far, with a really useful FSC weekend on soil mesofauna (not yet showing strongly in the species totals, but I've started seeing more pseudoscorpions, and lots of springtails and mites to look forward to in the autumn. A Scottish holiday finally provided Scheuchzeria palustris and some attractive fungi and beetles. Latest highlight was Dendrochernes cyrneus, a stunning pseudoscorpion apparently new to Woodwalton Fen. 2016 was quite productive in the end, including misc common microfungi, flies and Auchenorhyncha that I should have seen years ago. A few new evening-primroses with the new handbook; Echium plantagineum near Huntingdon; lots of new things on a trip to Orkney, including Mertensia maritime, Ligusticum scoticum, Atriplex laciniata, Polygonum boreale, Lamium confertum, Rorippa islandica, Primula scotica, Euprhasia foulaensis, Carex capillaris, Anaptychia runcinata, the real Peltigera polydactylon with Corticifraga fuckelii, Peziza ammophila, Hydroporus discretus, and the long-awaited Athurdendyus triangularis, Nearer home, a good year for microfungi and aphids, highlights including Myzocallis myricae, Stomaphis quercus, Aphis oenetherae, Chromaphis juglandicola. Also, the centipede Henia vesuviana (in a friend's garden in Cambs), a range of micromoths (all direct searched), Synanthedon flaviventris (gall), Hecatera dysodea (larvae a few weeks after adult), some new mosquitos (Aedes rusticus has some of the finest genitalia I've seen in ages), Chrysotoxum arcuatum, the rather stylish larva of Platycampus luridiventris (sawfly), Roncus lubricus (pseudoscorp), a few common Stenus spp. (lots more to go), Obrium brunneum in Bedfordshire, and Harpalus dimidiatus in Kent.

24 Stephen Plummer 4372 9th September, 2017 A holiday at the Welsh Wildlife Centre in Pembrokeshire, and on Portland knocked my moth list up by some 30 species, including a beautiful Nascia cilialis at the Portland Bird Observatory. A Brown-banded Carder Bee found in the Observatory moth trap was unexpected. A trip to the soft cliffs of Whale Chine on the south coast of the Isle of Wight was very fruitful with good numbers of Cliff Tiger Beetles, the bug Henestaris laticeps, Andrena pilipes and the rare tachinid, Linnaemya comta. Light Crimson Underwing on the outside of the trap at 1am in the morning during the unsettled July weather was a wonderful surprise! Finally found the Slender Hare's-ear at Newtown Estuary. A Devonshire Wainscot got me to 999 moth species & Nemapogon clematella to 1000, swiftly followed by Rosy Underwing & Portland Ribbon Wave!

A couple more moths too but still a long way to go to get all the plants up to date ...
