4 Richard Comont 7980 28th December, 2019 A lot of working through specimen backlogs, some finalised species lists from rockpooling with the MBA, a few days on Salisbury Plain, and a week's honeymoon in the Outer Hebrides 35
5 Nicola Bacciu 7680 10th January, 2020 More lichens like Rinodina griseosoralifera, Micarea byssacea and M.melaena, Bacidia subincompta and many lichenicolous fungi - most awaiting determination and/or description!. Spiders from Matt's year listing including rarities like Clubiona rosserae and bugs like Rhyparochromus vulgaris. Poor season for autumn fungy so a twitch of Battarrea phalloides (sandy stilt ball) was welcome with a bonus Ledra aurita. Naturalised plants like Soleirolia soleirolii (Mind Your Own Business) on the New Year flowering plant survey. 52
6 Graeme Lyons 7672 25th May, 2020 Hahnia pusilla, a 1.5 mm non-money spider sieved from Sphagnum on the 6th March 2020 at Broadwater Warren, East Sussex.

8 Brian Eversham 7411 29th December, 2019 2019 could be another lean year for new species as I spend more time trying to write workable keys to the new elm species. In the New Forest, I finally found Cladonia mediterranea and C. zopfii, and North York Moors C. merochlorophaea and C. cryptochlorophaea. Found four of the Cambs Goldilocks Buttercup species which I missed in 2018. Scotland in May provided some new stoneflies and mayflies, long-overdue alternative-leaved golden-saxifrage (thanks to Calum Urquhart). A good autumn for fungi, between the elms. 2018 was a fairly lean year as I spent most of the summer getting to know the newly described Elm species too (ending the year on 51 of the 63 taxa, 38 refound at their type localities). 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. A good Spring for Goldilocks Buttercups too - 15 species so far. Other 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 (great to see teres, molle and contortum in Norfolk), also gradually getting into testate (case-bearing) amoebae.
9 Steve Lane 7226 3rd May, 2020 A slow spring as expected. I've been fortunate to have been permitted to continue with instructed work on a number of Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserves, but this has been limited of course. Invert surveys are about to kick off soon which should help push the numbers up. Only 19 additions since last update (all March, through April 2020), the best of which are beetles, a total of 10 new species, including Procraerus tibialis, picked out of dead wood in a large old oak trunk at East Winch Common (near home), Trachys troglodytes, numbers in pitfall traps on chalk grassland at Narborough Railway Line NR, Atomaria zetterstedti, numbers off sallow blossom at East Walton Common where also Hydroporus elongatulus; Cryptolestes duplicatus and Cyclohipidion bodoanum under oak bark at Bretts Wood and Cousya nigrata, a female in a sand quarry at Blackborough End (just down the road, on a run from home) - woodlark in song here which was an unexpected surprise (though not new for me). Of the rest, perhaps the spider Mangora acalypha might be worthy of mention - several swept in chalk grassland at Narborough Railway line NR. A number of Sphaerocerid flies that I took at Roydon Common have been identified by Dave Brice, but I'm not counting these as I have no idea what the individual species look like or how they are identified.
10 Matt Prince 7065 10th January, 2020 Obviously this year was dominated by the Spider Year List with an astounding 50 spider lifers in 2019 - almost one a week and it wasn't like i was starting from scratch. Congratulations to the winner Graeme, but you know I had a great time, plus some amazing spiders :- Dec - Thyreosthenius parasiticus, Panamomops sulcifrons Oct - Marpissa radiata, Glyphesis servulus, Walckenaeria alticeps, Clubiona rosserae, Hygrolycosa rubrofasciata,Neon valentulus, Scotina gracilipes Sep Macaroeris nidicolens, Tegenaria agrestis, Zoropsis spinimana (a beast now she's grown a bit), Anyphaena numida, Micaria subopaca, Nigma walckenaeri, Philodromus fallax (at last!), Agroeca proxima July Allomengea vidua June Gnaphosa occidentalis, Agyneta ramosa, Dipoena tristis, Entelecara omissa, Thanatus striatus, Salticus zebraneus, Pirata uliginosus, Erigone welchi May Zora silvestris, Nigma flavescens, Oxyopes heterophthalmus, Pirata tenuitarsis, Hypsosinga albovittata, Trichoncus affinis, Maso gallicus, Cheiracanthium virescens, Trichopterna cito, Theridion blackwalli , Araeoncus humilis, Euophrys herbigrada Apr Robertus arundineti Silometopus ambiguus, Walckenaeria obtusa, Centromerus serratus, Mermessus trilobatus (new for Devon), Saloca diceros May Mermessus denticulatus (new to UK), Entelecara erythropus, Silometopus incurvatus Feb Meioneta mollis, Typhochrestus digitatus, Walckenaeria monoceros 50

13 Tony Davis 6820 5th March, 2020 70 new species this year; a few plants and the rest are the result of much slog over the microscope on my insect specimen backlog. Totally agree with Steve Lane, there seem to be two types of PSLer; those who try to improve their identification abilities and those who like writing stuff down
14 Simon Davey 6722 30th December, 2018 Rufous Turtle Dove, Radford's Flame Shoulder, Abia sericea, Andrena vaga

20 Kevin Rylands 6053 27th December, 2019 A challenging but rewarding year. Thought I'd try for a PSL total of 2000 but ended up on 3300 with 2561 in Devon and 1443 at Dawlish Warren. Many thanks to all those who have helped along the way. Recent Devon Fungus Group highlights include Wood Woollyfoot (Gymnopus peronatus), Bleeding Oak Crust (Stereum gausapatum), Clustered Bonnet (Mycena inclinata), Twisted Deceiver (Laccaria tortilis) and The Goblet (Pseudoclitocybe cyathiformis).

24 John Coldwell 5831 21st December, 2019 Chrysolina marginata. 2014 additions now included, 92 diptera, mainly calypterates, all from Barnsley area. Quite a few chironomids new for 2015. Also Ring-necked Parakeet and a new mammal - Chinese Water Deer (not from Barnsley!) 2016 saw 52 new diptera recorded locally, mainly chironomids, 6 new to Yorkshire. Pipunculus oldenbergi was a large pipunculid found at 2 localites also new for Yorks. A mysterious agromyzid that so far has evaded determination awaits specialist attention. Dusky Thrush.
25 John Martin 5403 27th February, 2020 Updated with 40 new species from start of 2020, mainly from local midweek outings with the wildlife group in Shropshire. As expected, VP list went down slightly with Stace 4 taxonomy (a few lumps, 5 I think). Setodes puntatus - amongst 12 new caddis in the garden in 2019 - with no records of adults since 2004, apparently was one of last year's highlights. 60
26 Andy Musgrove 5395 26th May, 2020 2019 summary: 305 new species identified by year-end, mostly made up of 132 new Hymenoptera (75 parasitica, 45 sawflies, 12 aculeates) and 100 new plants (mostly from Ben Lawers/Vrackie).

More Hymenoptera specimens unidentified but leaving til next year, or new keys. By end of the year, my personal biological-record tally stood on 194,450. 48
27 Neil Fletcher 4822 16th November, 2019 More work on hymenoptera over the last year, lots of new bees, wasps, ichneumons and sawflies. Some excellent moth-trapping in South Wales with the FSC and Dave Grundy added c50 new species. Need to get out more!
28 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 :)
29 George Tordoff 4612 16th July, 2018 A productive two days in Kent with Tony added 40 species including Scarce Black Arches, Fiery Clearwing, Dotted Fan-foot, Pigmy Footman, Ground Lackey and Bright Wave. 41
30 Sally Luker 4408 8th July, 2019 Very quiet on the recording front, as too distracting at the mo (shame)! Catching up with records from a while back - this and that, odds and ends, random bits and pieces, nothing overly exciting...
