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
8 Steve Lane 7538 3rd May, 2021 Just 7 additions in last few weeks: including Oxypoda induta (Lolly Moor), Scymnus nigrinus (Broadlands), four sawflies and a micromoth (Heliozela sericiella - dissected male).
9 Brian Eversham 7504 31st December, 2020 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.

29 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 :)
30 Sam Thomas 4600 11th February, 2021 851 new species in 2020. The annual summary is now on my blog https://sjtbotany.blogspot.com/2020/12/biological-recording-and-psl-review-2020.html Start of 2021 has been uneventful.
