That's a great demonstration of moth-trapping, well done! Hope we get a good summer this year, looking forward to seeing what turns up in my trap.

some amazing images of insects in flight from Robin Williams, makes you think how different the world must appear to a flying insect than it does to us

oh wow, the new UK hoverfly atlas has arrived, looks great, loads of new analysis of trends and habitats [resists temptation to spend the rest of day reading it]

Here's another interface to the database:
http://hyonteiset.luomus.fi/insects/main/EntDatabase.html
You can see that the total number of observations is currently over 2,000,000. Majority of observations are from Lepidoptera, and the site is the official database of the Finnish Lepidopterological Society, with over a thousand active observers. Diptera is also quite well represented.

There are some articles about the database development in
http://www.insects.fi/hyonteisuutiset/index.php/latest-articles.html

You might also like to take a look at a Diptera-wiki in

or Lepidoptera at

In case you haven't already heard, BWARS (Bees, Wasps and Ants Recording Society) has a fantastic new web site - loads of great photos and info. Why not join BWARS and help develop things further?

Just finished compiling some new training videos on the MapMate species recording database, for Botanical Society of the British Isles, with support from Scottish Natural Heritage.

sensational, alarmist headline ✔ dodgy comparisons with warfare ✔ 'kill them all' says pest-controller ✔ - it's insects in the press: http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/nature/invading-cannibal-ladybirds-take-over-britains-homes-6287000.html
