Numbers ticking along at a healthy rate over the weekend with an unexpected leap in springtail progress. They kept falling out of bushes and kept being identifiable, bless 'em. Long may it continue! Pogonognathellus longicornis, not pictured here, came from under a log on Friday. Most of the other additions could be considered "routine" which is fine, and the beetle list got a bit of a start with Micrambe ulicis and Pterostichus strenuus on the board. Plenty of plants only in leaf haven't been added - no rush.
|Entomobrya nivalis (redet. E.intermedia)|
(edit: On submitting the record of E.nivalis it was noted that the species which keys out as nivalis in Hopkins 2007 is more than one species and the above is actually E.intermedia)
