Agapanthia villosoviridescens Can't believe we didn't have this one from the Netherlands yet. Then I looked for images and could only find images I shot pre 2010 or so ... *rolleyes* ...

  1. I think we have roughly 2% of insects known to occur in the Netherlands covered by now, some way to go :)
    I see your point about this one though :)

    1. *lol* yes ... I may have about 20% of the Dutch species that I have images for on here, so maybe I can try to raise the grand total to 2,5% or some such ;o) But even that will take some "doing" still ... Posted 4 days ago

        1. Ha! I just *had* to do some checking ... we have around 23000 "native" species of Arthropods in the Netherlands. Personally I have some 650 species uploaded here. Some 70 of those are from La Palma, a few from Java and some are not Arthropods, so I should have a little over 500 species of arthropods that occur in the Netherlands here, being a little over 2% of all the Dutch species - just me alone. So that 2,5% I was aiming for must already be in the pocket with all the other species from other (Dutch) members here! :o) Posted 4 days ago
          1. It just shows the giant contributions you made, really well done! Posted 3 days ago
            1. Now you know you're exaggerating Ferdy ;o) Dozens of others here have at least twice or three times the number of species on here (you yourself even more), but it's not a competition, just awesome to see what has been brought together here by relatively few "loyal" participants :o) Posted 3 days ago
