4 Brian Eversham 6920 20th July, 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.

20 Kev Rylands 4852 25th June, 2017 A couple of Brambles and aliens increased the plant total but these were easily eclipsed by self-finding the much wanted Small Teasel in Wiltshire.

24 Stephen Plummer 4340 20th July, 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!

59 Danny Cooper 2227 22nd August, 2015 getting the moth trap out in the garden helped me add a few including Larch Pug Eupithecia lariciata Grass Rivulet Perizoma albulata and Bloxworth Snout Hypena obsitalis. The PSL weekend was brilliant, as well as meeting a few fellow listers I added 19 species including Omphlus pubescens. The fishing was good too! Seeing Sally was good as she always shows me things that have been in front of me all along like Nettle Gall Dasineura urticae, then meeting Richard Comont who helped me sort out me humbles and added Southern Cuckoo Bee Bombus vistalis. Few things seen with Mark Whittiker locally and looking forward to a few things in the coming weeks!
