So many insects

Kia ora tātou,

Julia (@ngaro) has uploaded pictures of the insects caught in her traps during the Bush City bioblitz.

The diversity is far higher than I imagined (although I'm a naive botanist).

Bush City really is much more than just the original plantings - our bioblitz shows that a whole lot of other species have evidently moved in.

With these additions, we've shot past the mark of 200 species, and reached 500 observations. Very impressive!

How many insects, birds, fungi, and plants are now living in Te Papa's Bush City? We know what species were planted when Bush City was established more than 20 years ago, but who has moved in since?!
