invekeithing, Fife

A couple of nice finds underneath stones in Inverkeithing at lunchtime. Breezeblocks beside the garages held a small collection of the beetle Silpha atrata, buried in a thin layer of moss, and a Lithobius melanops. A Sowerby's slug was under a larger rock beside the coastal path. Total species for the year is creeping along at 77 but without a huge effort invested.

  1. Looks like you are still making good progress. The centipede looks very striking with its purplish sheen in places.
