more taxonomy - Skippers

never knew there were so many genera in Hesperiidae, nor that there is such a large higher taxonomy - so many subfamilies and tribes.
I've waded my way through 100+ genera so far, placing to tribe (where possible) for the i-Nat database, and still have 160+ genera (for those already on the database) to go....

What I've found out - apart from a shed load of taxa, my body still has a long way to go before full recovery from last year's stroke is achieved. Still get exhausted far too quickly and can't type straight for very long.....

Yay.... Skippers all placed to subfamily or tribe (until a genus not yet on i-Nat is observed....)

Any idea if and when the journal is getting an update? Your last FB submission visiting the Mai Po area was very short and probably not the right audience or too general audience to take notice of your excellent work.

which journal ? . . . there are plenty to which I contribute, Raymund.
R.E. the Facebook entry about Mai Po - that's something of a test bed for future reports, which for the Mai Po moths is likely to appear in Porcupine! (Hong Kong University journal) ere long....

and I'm writing up a full checklist on Mai Po's moths too, probably for publication in another journal - (appropriately called) Check List -

..... then there's the recovery from the stroke, which remains ongoing. Fatigue and memory issues are still something of a problem. I need at least 8 hours sleep every day in order to be remotely coherent. One full day's work still necessitates at least one day's complete rest :(

(and I am being a bit of a tease - I do realize you are talking about the HKMRP journal on i-Nat !) - when my brain has a good moment and there is news... soon

Nice work Roger. I'll be following you on your work via Procupine!. Don't worry about any shortcomings either published in journals and sites. Your main attribution on moths is known and well respected. We Dutchmen are down to earth and favor good relations while respecting your own opinion. I'll be in contact with you either through Gary or in one of the sessions supported by my sponsors this year. Raymund.

Thx Raymund. You could also message me via the iNat message facility.
