My most recent eight new species have all come from close to home, in fact actually in my home for one of them.
Last year I noticed a plant on a nearby road verge, with yellow flowers and four petals, and spent some time trying to work out what sort of crucifer it was, but failed to come up with a satisfactory ID. It's flowering in the same place this year, and I again spent some time puzzling over the crucifer (cabbage family) pages, before it struck me that the leaves looked a bit like a poppy. So I tried the poppy family instead, and there it was - Greater Celandine Chelidonium majus (which is actually in the poppy family not the celandine family). I don't recall ever hearing of Greater Celandine before, but apparently it is quite a local archaeophyte that likes chalky soils. Thanks to everyone who provided confirmation via iSpot.
And today I noticed a tiny (c. 2mm) wasp on the inside of my front door. I wasn't at all sure what sort of wasp it was to start with, but I was hoping that it would be one of the very neglected species in family Bethylidae, and that's what it turned out to be. It keys out as Bethylus dendrophilus, which is quite a rarity according to David Baldock's Wasps of Surrey, although there are so few records of bethylids in general that it is hard to know what their status is. My specimen will need to be confirmed, but it's definitely something different from the one and only other time I've found a bethylid.
Other recent additions have mostly been spiders from the garden (I've not recorded spiders very consistently before) and beetles from the compost heap. No need to travel far to twitch new species!
