With all the responsibilities you have in your life, I'm also amazed that
you've stuck it out. I'm sure I speak for a great many here when I say:
We're glad you did, Marek!

You and the other volunteer admins not only maintain the catalog (arguably the
site's most valuable asset) but are foundational for what community remains
with the site. And even though I don't use the site as much as I once did,
I would like to express my appreciation for, and admiration of, the work/time
and it’s selfless nature, that you’ve given to this beloved site.

As I've always felt that appreciation should not only be expressed but shown,
let me know if there's something I might do for you, at some point.

Unrelated topic, and if you'd care to share, there is something I'm
curious about: Why Hygrotus confluens as your identification here? I mean it's
gotta be difficult as an Entomologist to choose from the nearly countless insects,
just one to identify with, why that one?

It is hard to explain I just like this genus very much, it has very interesting
species, many quite rare and living in some interesting habitats. As my mainly
intersts are water beetles so the obvious choose was species only from this group
of insects. But with this certain species I have also some nice memories when
collecting it for the very first time. It was my begginings in the entomolgy.
After trying something in scarab beetles then in chrysomelids I finally found
"my group" So first time I found this species in very interesting habitat
in closed military area. It was tank military compound near my city. We have
permissions to go there. So this species was swimming in puddles on the tank
trails This species inhabits mainly very initial type of waters like fresh
pools in sand pits or puddles. This was the first rare and interesting species
of water beetles which I collected on my begginings then.
Now I'm co-author of descriptions of 5 new species of water beetles new to
science
Btw my inttrest in entomology started in high school when I was breeding two
african Pachnoda species (Scarab beetles).

Yes I enjoy it very much and I must say it was quite a learning. There was so
many things which I didn't know then whih I know now about LEGO especially
old ones.
