Entomologist with Rothamsted Insect Survey.
My bogey species:
Purple emperor and purple hairstreak continue to evade me.
My most wanted:
Too many to list - some more cetaceans would be nice as would wildcat, gyrfalcon and capercaille.
I guess Shepherd's Needle & Corn Cleavers (both on Broadbalk, Rothamsted) are my best plants - I'd be happy to show panspecies listers if they visit at the right time of year. Several of my 238 aphid species - the main one being Ericolophium holsti which, to my knowledge, has only been seen in the UK by seven people. I've also got 11 species of phytoplankton & seven copepods as a result of university studies many years ago.
