Abstract

This paper, part 2 of a study following developments of the flora and fauna of the Wildlife Garden at the Natural History Museum (The London Naturalist No. 95, 2016), reports on groups omitted in part 1 and lists species new to the Garden in the past year. The groups covered by this paper are algae, fungi, plant galls, Collembola, Lepidoptera (butterflies), woodlice, amphipods, tardigrades and amphibians. As in part 1, the changes in species composition and abundance within the groups are discussed. The list of recorded species since 1995 stands at 3,290 of which three moths were new sightings to Britain.
