Three spp. of Hoverfly were added - Eristalis tenax, Dasysyrphus tricinctus and Playcheirus clypeatus. Other notable inverts were my first Cullaloe Striped Millipede and an old favourite Megabunus diadema, the Crowned Harvestman (my own name, but that's what it is!)
A few Coleoptera that never would have been recorded were added, with my favourites a four spotted weevil that like nettles - Nedyus quadrimaculatus - and a nice red-legged red-edged ground beetle Leistus rufomarginatus
Apart from the hovers a number of flies also made their way into pots and a number of species await final determination - spider, beetle and fly. Three toadstools were also collected, but whether they produce an ID remains to be seen.
A big jump forward to the target 500 was made and may be enough to push to completion before end of Q2!
