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. The Australian list is a bit long at 324 species but can just about be dealt with.
- UK species
- European species
- French species
- Iberian species
- Bosnia and Herzegovina species
- Moroccan species
- Australian species
- New Zealand species
Where SE Asia and Southern Africa are concerned, exhaustive lists are either very long (Africa: 780) or very difficult (Cambodia under recorded). 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.
