Background in ecology and general natural history, former birder and keen moth-er. Now mostly focused on other insect orders, in particular Hemiptera and Coleoptera (these are the only totals currently listed)
My bogey species:
Tarts ticks include Iceland Gull, Goshawk, December Moth, Sprawler, probably loads more. Amazingly I have never seen a live Stag Beetle in Britain despite living in London!
My most wanted:
Arenocoris waltli, Rhopalus rufus, Eurydema dominulus, Metalimnus formosus, Doratura impudica + loads of beetles (eg Emus, Callistus)
Stichoglossa semirufa. Various things which others may not yet have caught up with include Stictoleptura cordigera, Stenus intermedius, Psammotettix alienus, Macropsis megerlei, Rhopalopyx elongata, Orientus ishidae, Enedreytes hilaris
Recent highlights: Stichoglossa semirufa, Blethisa multipunctata, Bembidion octomaculatum, Neocoenorrhinus pauxillus, Stictonectes lepidus, Anthonomus conspersus, Saldula arenicola.
