(soon to become MaltaFauna.com)

Thanks RB, MWP: this reminds me that I answered your questions similar (have a look at page NN) and you said it is more easy to ask in the forum :D

JP: I perfectly agree, its a bit more fun, social and 'easy' to ask on the forum - I just wanted to advertise the fauna page :P

(well to be serious, just wanted to let you know about that page)

That page is very good especially for the commoner species needed to be identified, though as you said in another thread a specimen in the hand is best when dealing with invertebrates. Not to mention the laborious dissections needed to identify particular types of molluscs and dipterans :cry:
