Some Metrics for 2012

Now that I have cataloged most of last year's (2102) catches, Let me present you with some numbers.
Despite the awful end of the season results, last year's 492 specimens were added to the database.
Many new county records were added, but I have not yet picked those out of the matrix.
Tramea onusta, a new UP record was added by Jorie O'Brien.
108 species were collected.


Collections were made in 27 counties (see map): Barry, Benzie, Berrien, Cass, Clinton, Eaton, Genesee, Gratiot, Ingham, Ionia, Jackson, Lake, Lenawee, Livingston, Luce. Marquette, Macomb, Manistee, Montoe, Oakland, Otsego, Presque Isle, Saginaw, Schoolcraft. Tuscola, Washtenaw, and Wayne.

The earliest collection date was March 25 - Ischnura verticalis in Saginaw Co. by Jeff Sommer, and the latest collection date was November 9 - Sympetrum vicinum in Washtenaw Co., by Mark O'Brien.

Anax junius was collected on April 13 in Oakland Co. by Craves/O'Brien, 11 May in Washtenaw Co. (MFO), and Marquette Co., Jorie O'Brien and Greg Bauman.
