11 Brian Eversham 7658 28th September, 2022 2018-2021 have been very lean years for diversity, as I've spent more time trying to write workable keys to the new elm species (latest version at https://www.wildlifebcn.org/sites/default/files/2021-07/Complete%20key%20to%20native%20and%20naturalised%20elms.pdf ).

I've worked through nearly all the eastern Englisn Goldilocks Buttercup species too.

18 Kevin Rylands 6785 25th December, 2022 With no specimens to sift a traditionally slow end to the year with a range of new taxa from Dawlish Warren including the globular springtails Dicyrtomina minuta & Sminthurides aquaticus, the fungi Orange Ping-pong Bat Favolaschia calocera, Oakbug Milkcap Lactarius quietus, Collared Parachute Marasmius rotula & Mauve Bonnet Mycena meliigena, the hydroid Dynamena pumila and the algae Creeping Chain Weed Catenella caespitosa.

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.

34 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 :)

84 Danny Cooper 2580 21st December, 2022 Not a big year for me but added 38 species, my year list ended on 506 which was lower than last year. Was bitten by a Speckled Sea Louse which was my only new crustacean and my highlight was finally adding Blue Fin Tuna on my first stay at Portland for a few years. I have added a good few moths with the lights at work acting as a moth trap over the summer. I also went through my old notebooks and found several species not on my list which I've now added. Plan on getting a bit more motivated in 2023. Back on track again! Happy hunting for the new year!
