I'm curious. What taxa do you think you have better taxonomic knowledge of
than all your peers, thus those where you would expect others to mostly
leave the compilation of info (print checklist, online facility, or
whatever) to you,  and what proportion did those groups occupy in the 2003
list, or indeed do they occupy in the forthcoming Coleoptera list in the
unpublished NZ Inventory book vol 2?

Also, are there any NZ/world groups in which you have an interest where,
in conjunction with another professional entomologist with overlapping
interests, you might see yourself exchanging views, and producing a
collaborative paper that would be better than either's solo effort?
