Here we go again with another year list. Since I'm not expecting as much travel this year as the last couple the total may be a little down but we'll have to see what comes up.

For comparison purposes I'll update this post with the number of species seen by country.

As of Nov 13 the total for 2012 stands at 648.

For comparison purposes:
Country_______2008___2009___2010___2011___2012
Singapore______234____210____206____175____220
USA___________207___________177
