Update 3. July 2020: 24 species is only a fraction of the known species in this massive family of micro-moths – over 10.000 species have been described worldwide – they are commonly known as leaf-rollers. They are small in size, never reaching over 3 cm in wing-span.

Update 2. July 2020: Arachnids are much more than spiders – a nice group of arachnids are found among the Harvestmen (Opiliones). Some species are often seen in gardens, on walls or on leaves. The species do not make webs, and don’t have the glands for it – which seperate them from the true spiders. They are also morphological different.

Update 28. June 2020: The small jewels among flies, must without a doubt be found in the family Tephritidae, they are quite attractive, small and delicate – i have come across a few species over the years, and these can be seen on this new subpage.

Update 22. June 2020: Today the family Cicadellidae was added – another large family of insects, with a worldwide distribution. I have only seen a few, but mainly due to lack of focus on this group of rather small and jumpy creatures.

Update 18. June 2020: I have added the family Dytiscidae – a large family of water-beetles – including both very small species, and some of the largest beetles in Europe. I hope to add many more species over the next couple of years, just need to focus a bit more on fresh-water habitats 🙂

I have only been able to name a few of the ones i have come across, but maybe some of the others might be able to ID if an expert looks at them 🙂

Update 28. May 2020: In the summer of 2017 – my wife and son, found a mysterious little creature swimming in a waterfilled wheel track at Kulsbjerg Øvelsesterræn, Denmark. We caught one, and after having send pictures online, interest was shown from experts on these kind of creatures. We ended up making a short trip some days later, to catch a few more, and preserve them for the Zoological Museum, Copenhagen. These were the first records of Brachipus schaefferi from Denmark

Update – 23. May 2020:
I have added a few pictures of Sand Lizards (Lacerta agilis), taken 22. May at Kulsbjerg Øvelsesterræn, Denmark. 22. May is a very special day to me – it is first of all my Birthday, but more importantly its “International Biodiversity Day” – and i therefore use this opportunity every year, to go to one of my favorite localities to search for all kinds of creatures.

Scientific Names vs. Common Names:
I prefer to use the scientific names of the animals i work with, so you will not find many common names used in general.
