5 Brian Eversham 7203 24th October, 2018 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 (30 so far, mostly quite convincingly distinct, and with different ranges of insects feeding on them). Zigzag Elm Sawfly from at least 9 sites so far. Highlights so far this year include Sundew Plume Buckleria paludum on Thorne Moors (adults, larvae, pupa and exuviae.. not yet found eggs!), Cladonia mitis on the Norfolk coast, long-overdue Equisetum pratense on a Scottish trip, and Geopora sumneriana in one of the Goldilocks churchyards. 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.
6 Graeme Lyons 7158 12th December, 2018 Ribautiana ulmi sitting on the corpse of a Southern Oak Bush-cricket (that originally caught my eye) under an avenue of elms at the end of my street in Brighton, 29/11. 40

8 Matt Prince 6800 18th August, 2018 Arctosa cinerea what a beast of a spider :) on the Lune. Ceratinopsis romana at Northam Burrows and Rugathodes instabilis in the clennen valley both on bioblitzs. Yealm bioblitz included some over the shoulder ticks, but the most satisfying find was merely a Devon tick, with the third Opilio canestrinii for the county. Thereva nobilitata with the fly guys at Whiddon Deer Park. Paragamasus runciger Inshanks fell (a rare win from 100's in the mite backlog). Sminthurus viridis amongst several ticks on the Par PSL weekend (some good spiders as well, but not lifers). 49

11 Steve Lane 6706 17th November, 2018 August - November. 130 new species, the majority being leaf-mining Lepidoptera and Diptera which I've only counted if I've seen live larvae in tenanted mines (otherwise I would just be ticking leaf tissue). Thanks to the Norfolk Moth Group peeps and particularly James Symonds for helping me to find many of these in the field. Also 20 new Coleoptera, the emphasis being on aleocharine roves - still great potential to find many more of these. I'm also about to get into Collembola in a big way, having dismissed this group in the past.
