For the most part, here are lists of recorded species within the countries we’ve visited, together with links back to our species pages for those that we’ve encountered.
Where SE Asia and Southern Africa and Australia are concerned, exhaustive lists are either very long (Africa: 780) or very difficult (Cambodia under recorded). Also, whilst an exhaustive list of Australian species is eminently possible, listing 324 species with only a dozen ticked off seems pointless so I’ve given that the same treatment. The following I’ve treated differently, these being simply lists of those species we’ve actually seen.
Below is a table of counts of species by various geographic areas, both those that I’m already interested in and those that I’d like to become interested in by visiting.
