So maybe 3 new spp. in 2013, you reckon??
Yeah, 2013 should bring at least 6 new scarabaeines (including 1 new genus), a few new gymnochiline trogossitids, some new carabids, and possibly some new zopherids (?), hydrophilids, proteinine staphylinids (hopefully), etc...

I said I was amused, not disgusted! Therefore, the discussion is keeping
me amused, and suitably distracted from productive stuff. I am just amazed
that it does for so long.
From ms I have seen that are approaching completion, 2013 will be a banner
year for NZ, so there is always hope.
