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.
- UK species
- European species
- French species
- Iberian species
- Bosnia and Herzegovina species
- New Zealand species
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.
