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 Graeme Lyons 7769 29th September, 2020 Bisigna procerella trapped at actinic in my Brighton garden! 9th August 2020. Cydia amplana, Warnham, West Sussex, 20th August 2020.

6 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
7 Alastair Stevenson 7648 2nd July, 2020 Some of my personal highlights from first half of the year: Mutilla europea, Tortella densa, Abietinella abietina, Phaonia valida, new for Exmoor, Tomius pinipenda, 2nd record for Exmoor, Anatis ocellate, Arion intermedius, Limax cinereoniger, Osmia spinulosa, Osmia bicornis, new for Exmoor, Colletes sucinctus, Epeolus variegatus, Andrena lapponica, Andrena bucephata, Andrena nitida, Ammophila subulosa, Symmorphus gracilis.
8 Brian Eversham 7448 10th June, 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.

11 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.

15 Stephen Plummer 6669 28th September, 2020 August: The highlight of the month was the visit of 2 different female Cheilosia caerulescens hoverflies to the houseleeks that I planted as a lure. A third one on the rockery at work made it feel a bit like buses turning up all at once! Moth-wise, I joined the Gypsy Moth club, and trips out to some special places with friends also brought my first Royal Mantle & Agonopterix pallorella amongst others. It's been a good month for plants with local trips to see Green Helleborine, Chalk Knapweed and Chiltern Gentian. I visited some local canal locks hoping for Bidens connata (in the week that Biden received the Presidential nomination) and found several plants straightaway. Aceria tristiata on Walnut and the mite, Aculus schmardae galling Clustered Bellflower, were new county records. I twitched the fantastic Tasmanian Eucalyptus Beetle and ended the month with the equally stunning ichneumon, Hepiopelmus variegatorius.

22 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).

23 William Bishop 6035 19th September, 2020 Crescent Dart in light trap, first for Herts.
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 Andy Musgrove 5462 19th September, 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). Also added were 18 flies, 14 beetles, 10 moths, 9 bugs, 5 arachnids, 4 fungi, 4 misc insects, 2 algae and 1 each of birds (Eastern Yellow Wag), fish (Rock Goby), butterflies (Mountain Ringlet), lichens, molluscs, sponges and springtails.

26 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 punctatus - amongst 12 new caddis in the garden in 2019 - with no records of adults since 2004, apparently was one of last year's highlights. 61
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...
31 Sam Thomas 4310 29th September, 2020 General invert recording latest species including Tanypeza longimana, Sarcophaga arcipes, Sarcophaga melanura, Tiphia femorata. Finally got round to seeing most of my missing butterfly species (brown hairstreak, silver-spotted skipper, adonis blue). Started making an effort with Odonata (small-red eyed, white-legged, southern blue) and Orthoptera (Stenobothrus lineatus, Meconema meridionale). Relatively uneventful pelagic finally added European storm petrel as well as Cory's shearwater and Mola mola. Portland and south Dorset trip including Lulworth skipper, Limonium recurvum subsp. portlandicum, Centaurium tenuiflorum and melodious warbler. Latest garden moth trap additions include Haplotinea insectella, Coleophora saxicolella and Ectoedemia decentella. 32

35 Pete Forrest 4009 30th April, 2020 End of April update
36 Sean Browne 4000 15th August, 2020 Several new species from my garden, pond and compost heap during lockdown. The new Ladybird book inspired me to find some of the smaller species, Scymnus frontalis, Scymnus suturalis, Rhyzobius litura, Rhyzobius chrysomeloides and Chilocorus bipustulatus. Other highlights were Eurydema oleracea Brassica Shieldbug, Neliocarus sus Heather Weevil, Micrelus ericae Small Heather Weevil, Pissodes pini, Leiopus nebulosus Black-clouded Longhorn, and though not a lifer, four Box Bugs including a mating pair in my garden. Still scarce in Notts. 63
