5 Brian Eversham 7259 7th January, 2019 A fairly quiet 2018, with a lot of effort getting to know the newly described Goldilocks Buttercups - 15 species so far, and a couple I'm still struggling with - and the new Elm species too (ending the year on 51 of the 63 taxa, and maybe a couple more in my herbarium when I do more measurements). Most are convincingly distinct, and with different ranges of insects feeding on them. Zigzag Elm Sawfly from at least 28 sites so far, on 20 different host elm species. Highlights in 2018 included Sundew Plume Buckleria paludum on Thorne Moors (adults, larvae, pupa and exuviae), Cladonia mitis on the Norfolk coast, long-overdue Equisetum pratense on a Scottish trip, and Geopora sumneriana in one of the Goldilocks churchyards. And, as I've done more with Sphagnum, also gradually getting into testate (case-bearing) amoebae. 2017 was good fun overall, 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.

27 Martin Harvey 4809 27th January, 2019 Finally (it's only taken me six years or so!) I've got round to properly sorting out the links between my MapMate species names and my iRecord species names. I've also filtered out various species aggregates and sub-species that were being double-counted. I now have a much tidier, but shorter, list! This hides a few additions during 2018 (mostly flies and beetles), and also provides incentive to keep recording during 2019 :)
