The faunistic database just increased to 85,632 records, the number of contributors to 1,316. Thanks to all who contributed their faunistic records in this update cycle. Additionally, I have just applied a little facelift to the inline map module. Hopefully, it is now more intuitive to use, especially for new users.

I have just added an additional feature to the map module: At Fabian's suggestion, in dynamic map mode the discovery markers can now be aggregated to the ordnance map sheets of TK 50 and TK 100, thus the granularity of the discoveries can be reduced. Also here, discovery markers can be clicked, if matching inquiries/records from our inquiry module exist. In this case however, an inquiry is not shown directly (since several inquiries may lay beneath one aggregated discovery marker), instead the inquiry search module is called, where all respective inquiries can be viewed. As a side effect, the inquiry search module has been enabled to handle the ordnance map sheets of TK 50 (e.g. L1116) and TK 100 (e.g. C4726).

I have just implemented a new functionality resulting from a very good proposal of our user Tobias67: In the map module, discovery markers resulting from user inquiries/records in our forum are now clickable in dynamic map mode. Upon clicking, the corresponding inquiry is displayed as a popup.

I have just added a new functionality to the map module: You can now display the names and borders of the administrative districts of Germany. In all popup map modules (which are mainly used to gather map sheet numbers), the functionality is not available to keep them as slim and fast as possible.

Due to a comment I received today from our forum user Chris regarding the seasonal occurrence of our two Lagria species, I spontaneously decided to work a bit on our phenograms. While the phenograms call be called as a popoup from all species overviews as usual, the main phenogram module is now capable to display phenograms of up to six species at the same time. Just give it a try with this sample inquiry.

Addendum: This morning I just added a selectable view mode. When displaying several species in one phenogram, you can now choose between conjoined and stacked view. The new stacked view makes the structure of the phenogram clearer, especially when displaying more than two species.

Some of you might have noticed that the GUI of kerbtier.de changed in some details during the last four weeks, e.g. design of the buttons and dropdown boxes. Under the hood kerbtier.de now works with HTML 5 instead of HTML 4.01 (strict). Also, I have started to use jQuery on more pages and this trend will continue. If you find any bugs, please send me a bug report, preferably via our contact form or by email.

Minor expansion of the highlights from the requests for beetle ID: In the category "Unsolved exotics" you'll find ID requests for beetles from outside Europe, which we could not determine at all or only to family or genus level. Maybe some of the experts out there take the challenge to have a look of this gallery. In any case we would be happy to receive expert feedback and solution proposals, preferably via our contact form or by email.
