Madagascar 2018 Checklist

on
6 June 2018

A group of participants from BugShot Mozambique 2018 extended their trip with me to Madagascar for a macro-centric journey from 30 May to 6 June 2018.

Thanks to the following for helping with the trip logistics and planning:

  • Madagascar Wildlife for all logistics arrangements. If you do engage them for your trip, let them know that you found them through this site!
  • Chien C. Lee for numerous helpful recommendations.

This page documents a list of what I’ve photographed and sorted taxonomically. Many identifications were possible with help from many kind folks, especially the following:

  • Serge Pasquasy for frog and gecko identifications
  • Patrick Andriamihaja for chameleon identifications
  • Matjaž Gregorič for Caerostris identifications
  • Ansie Dippenaar-Schoeman for Thomisidae identifications
  • Nicolas Cliquennois for stick insect identifications
  • Martin Ramirez for Trachelidae & Viridasiidae identifications

Identifications are usually not very accurate when done from photos alone. Please let me know if you spot any mistakes.
