Updates and posts to this web site are delayed due to ongoing problems I am having with internet access. This is because of the degradation of the existing phone line infrastructure which it is hoped will be upgraded by the spring of 2017.

Staphylinidae – Rove Beetle

I've just discovered that there are apparently over a 1000 species in the family staphylinidae, at which point I almost lost the will to live. After a search I came across Mark Telfer's blog and having had a good look I came to the conclusion that it may be a member of the sub-family steninae which is about as far as I can go.

I've sent out a few emails in the hope that someone can help identify this rather colourful specimen which I spotted at NH 30256 26219 on 18.05.11

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
