Welcome to joining the Project.
歡迎!

It takes 777 days (25mon & 17d) from the day the project established, Sept. 26, 2017 till Nov. 11, 2019 to reach 100 members. The more the merrier, I think; and 777 is an interesting number, triple lucky 7.

按這个專案成立(2017.9.26)到昨昏(2019.11.11),粒積到 100 个成員,拄仔好 777 工(抑是講 25 個月閣 17 工)。我想:濟人濟跤手,加人加福氣。而且 777 嘛是一个心適數,是三倍的 lucky seven,不通共當做三七仔呢!

One thing I wish to remind our members that when uploading the obs of dragonflies and damselflies logged in Taiwan (including surrounding islands), pls make sure to add those to the project. Besides, if you find any odonate obs logged in Taiwan, pls also add it to the project.

有一層代誌欲請咱的成員注意佮鬥相工:佇咧上傳田嬰和秤仔的記錄時,請會記得共加入咱的專案。準講若是拄著無加入咱專案的田嬰和秤仔的記錄時,嘛請順紲共加入咱的專案。

Should you have any question or suggestion, pls feel free to let me know. Thank you for your participation.

感謝逐家的參加。若是有任何的批評指教,請毋通客氣,做你共我講。

The number of obs added to the Project further decreased comparing with Sept., only a bit more than 83% of what we gained last month. The number was expected to have dropped much more, thanks to the comeback of Hong @doggy0406, there was no drastic downsize. However, the numbers are expected to decline in coming months as well. There are quite some 750 obs of Odonata logged in Taiwan but not having been collected to the Proj. So, some reviews will be conducted in the near future to collect those left out of the Proj.
.
十月份咱這个專案所收錄的觀察記錄共九月份比起來閣進一步減少,只有頂個月的八成較加。本來按算會減閣較濟,若無芳仔(Hong @doggy0406) 重出江湖,就煞連頂個月的七成嘛無。閣去就應該會減袂加矣!毋過猶有750 幾條台灣的田嬰和秤仔的記錄無收錄入來,小可閣整理一下,共遐的收入來,嘛是真可觀。橫直咱這个專案就欲開始度小月矣,拄仔好會使趁彼陣來共整理一下。
.
.
Two things worthwhile mentioning in this Oct.
十月份兩項心適代:
.
1. "Sympetrum fonscolombii" logged at Kenting area by Sin Syue Li@cleanylee
第一項是 Sin Syue Li @cleanylee 佇咧墾丁記錄著的「紅脈蜻蜓」
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/34293478
.
The species was reported from the northern part of Taiwan and eastern islands*(1), so it was rare (at least, none as I knew of) to see one in the southernmost of Taiwan. However, Sin Syue Li stated that he saw a female last Oct at the very same spot, so the species should occur every year but nobody had ever paid attn to it before.
.
這隻田嬰目前干焦知影伊分布咧台灣北部參東部離島*(1),所以佇墾丁記錄著算講是真稀罕。不而過 Sin Syue Li 講伊舊年踮仝一个所在嘛看著一隻母的;所以應該是逐年攏會出現,只是無人捌去注意爾。(人講:「溜溜瞅瞅,食兩蕊目睭。」無的確是 Sin Syue Li 有鷹仔目!)
.
The species is considered as vagrant in Japan flying from the continent, however, many were sighted on the Pacific coast *(2), which appears quite similar here, too. There were sighting reports from the northern Taiwan, Green Islands *(3) and Kenting as well. So, it's quite reasonable to say this species also occurs along the eastern coast of Taiwan. A small population of the species scatter in the long coastal area where fewer people live might be the reason preventing the species from being sighted in the long eastern part. As we can tell from iNat community, the obs logged in the eastern coastal area are rather few as well. But as long as people keep logging what they encounter in the field, I think the sighting from Hualian & Taitung is just a matter of time.
.
這隻田嬰佇日本嘛是予當做「迷蜓」(飛毋知路的田嬰),一般是認為自大陸飛過去(日本)矣,毋過佇太平洋這爿沿海的所在嘛有真濟發現!*(2)按呢看起來略仔成台灣目前所知影的情形:北部、綠島*(3)和墾丁。咱會使合理推論:這隻田嬰佇東部(花蓮佮台東)嘛有,只是族群數量無濟,東部海岸真長,猶閣較少人蹛,所以到今猶無目擊報告;這對 iNat 觀察記錄嘛看會出來:花蓮、台東的海線,觀察記錄攏真少。逐家繼續共觀察落去,我想:欲踮東部發現這隻田嬰只是時間的問題。
.
This species distributes "in much of central and southern Europe including most Mediterranean islands, North Africa, the Middle East, Mongolia, south-western Asia, including the Indian Subcontinent, the Indian Ocean Islands and Sri Lanka." And it "has increasingly been found in northwest Europe, including Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Britain and Ireland."*(4)
.
這隻田嬰分布誠闊,本來踮佇地中海地區、南歐、北非、中東、蒙古、印度、斯里蘭卡,又閣湠到西歐、北歐親像英國、法國、瑞典、芬蘭遮的國家。*(4)
.
Regarding the assumption or hypothesis in Japan that the species is from Asia Continent, this should be hard to substantiate since many were reported from the eastern coastal area in Japan, and also eastern island of Taiwan. (It's difficult to prove it wrong as well.) Now we learnt the species also occurs in the southernmost of Taiwan. So, could it come from the south? Or would there be 2 migrant routes, one from the West, from Mongolia, then China, Korean Peninsula, then Japan & Taiwan; the other from the South (South-west), from India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Borneo (or Indochina), Philippines, then Taiwan & Japan? This is really an intriguing question! Human beings asked not only ourselves, where we are from, who we are and where we are going but are also curious about other beings. (feel like putting Paul Gauguin's famous painting, D'où venons-nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous?, as illustration here.)
.
因為佇東爿沿海地區嘛有真濟記錄,煞佮懷疑這隻田嬰是對大陸飛過去日本的假設袂對同(嘛仝款無法度證偽);而且這馬知影是佇台灣北爿、東爿的綠島佮墾丁攏有,所以伊嘛是有可能按南爿上北的。抑是講伊分做兩路?一路對大陸北方來:蒙古、中國、朝鮮半島然後日本、台灣?另外猶有行海路對南(西南)方來的:印度、斯里蘭卡、印尼、婆羅洲、(中南半島)、然後菲律賓、台灣?「大哉問!」這實在是一个真趣味的問題。咱毋但問家己對佗位來,咱是誰,欲去佗位。咱對其他的生物嘛是有仝款的好奇。(想欲共"補.久鏡"彼幅有名的圖《D'où venons-nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous?》 囥佇這。)
.
.
2. The obs logged by Hong at costal area on Oct. 26
第二項有幾若條記錄,是芳仔十月26佇雲林口湖海邊仔的觀察。
https://www.inaturalist.org/calendar/doggy0406/2019/10/26
.
Those obs show the species that we can find near the coast which are supposed to have the capacity of enduring or tolerating brackish water, some species might even prefer brackish water to the fresh one. Well, here are what Hong logged then.
.
遐的觀察記錄予咱了解啥物種的田嬰會分布佇海邊仔,這幾種田嬰應該攏有法度適應鹹水。凡勢閣有一寡是無愛汫水,愛鹹水的?下仔遮的就是芳仔彼工佇雲林口湖海墘的滯洪池記錄著的田嬰佮秤仔:
.
Ischnura senegalensis ...............青紋細蟌
Macrodiplax cora ...................... 高翔蜻蜓
Tramea transmarina euryale .. 海霸蜻蜓 微斑亞種
Crocothemis s. servilia ............ 猩紅蜻蜓
Diplacodes trivialis ................... 侏儒蜻蜓

兩個可能變更的學名 / Possible taxon change in the checklist of Taiwan

1. 扶桑蜻蜓
.
Orthetrum japonicum internum McLachlan, 1894
=> Orthetrum internum McLachlan, 1894
.
根據苅部治紀 (KARUBE Haruki) 等人於2012年發表的研究(*1),日本就把這隻蜻蜓從 O. japonicum internum 亞種升格成 O. internum 「種」。連中國今年最新的出版的「中国蜻蜓大图鉴」(*2)也採用這種見解。「臺灣生物多樣性國家資訊網」雖然也引用苅部治紀等人於2012年發表的研究結果,把「無霸勾蜓」的學名從Anotogaster sieboldii (Selys, 1854) 改成 Anotogaster klossii Fraser, 1919。 但是,TaiBNET / TaiCOL 並沒有據此研究更改「扶桑蜻蜓」的學名。台灣會把它命名為扶桑蜻蜓,應該是根據他的學名 O. japonicum internum 來的,這也許是台灣學界不肯把它「升格」的原因之一。
.
Based on Karube et al (2012) (*1), the publications & internet dragonfly websites in Japan have been employing O. internum since. The latest Chinese publication on Odonata in China by Dr. Zhang (*2) also accepted such conclusion. It's puzzling why Taiwan's academia not. Curiously enough the same research conclusion was used to modify the taxon of Anotogaster sieboldii to Anotogaster klossi as published on website of TaiBNET/TaiCOL.(*3)
.
根據苅部 治紀 (KARUBE Haruki) 等人佇 2012 年所發表的研究(*1),日本就共這隻田嬰按 O. japonicum internum 亞種升格做 O. internum 「種」。連中國今年上新出版的「中国蜻蜓大图鉴」(*2) 嘛採用這款見解。「臺灣生物多樣性國家資訊網」雖然嘛引用苅部治紀等人佇咧 2012 年所發表的研究結果,共「無霸勾蜓」的學名按 Anotogaster sieboldii (Selys, 1854) 改成 Anotogaster klossii Fraser, 1919。 但是,TaiBNET / TaiCOL 並無根據這个研究來更改「扶桑蜻蜓」的學名。台灣共號作「扶桑蜻蜓」,應該是根據伊的學名 O. japonicum internum 來的,這無定著嘛是台灣學界毋肯共伊「升格」的原因之一。
.
.
2. 灰黑蜻蜓
.
Orthetrum melania (Selys, 1883)
=> Orthetrum melania continentale Sasamoto & Futahashi, 2013
.
從 iNat 上的觀察紀錄來看,日本的 O. melania 比台灣的好認,比較有特色。青木先生去年夏天在通信中告訴我 O. melania 有四個亞種,其中三個在日本;在台灣、中国和朝鮮半島是另一個亞種 ssp. continentale。(但是「中国蜻蜓大图鉴」的記載是「异色灰蜻 Orthetrum melania melania (Selys, 1883)」) 原來台灣與日本的「灰黑蜻蜓」是不同亞種,所以看起來不太一樣。

(還有一個亞種在越南北部,ssp. superbum (*6 )。但是這五個亞種的學名都還沒有新增到 iNat 的資料庫中。)
.
One can easily find that O. melania in Japan are more distinctive than those in Taiwan on iNat. I was told, "species O. melamia is divided into four subspecies, i.e. melania melania, m. continentale, m. ryukyuense, and m. yaeyamense. Spp. continentale is distributed in Taiwan, Korea Peninsular and China, not in Japan.(*4)" by Mr. AOKI Takashi in the email correspondence last May (2018). Mr. AOKI subsequently rewrote his website and added to his Japanese checklist with 2 southern ssp. and modified O. melania into O. m. melania.(*5). Later on, I learnt there are 5 ssp., O. m. superbum distributes in northern Vietnam. The taxa of all these 5 ssp. have yet to be added to the iNat database.
.
自 iNat 的觀察紀錄來看,日本的 O. melania 比台灣的好認,較有特色。青木先生舊年熱人佇咧通信中共我講 O. melania 有四个亞種,其中三个佇咧日本;毋過佇台灣、中国佮朝鮮半島是另外一个亞種 ssp. continentale。(「中国蜻蜓大图鉴」的記載是「异色灰蜻 Orthetrum melania melania (Selys, 1883)」) 原來台灣佮日本的「灰黑蜻蜓」是無仝款的亞種,所以看起來無相siang (相同)。

(猶有一个亞種佇越南北部,ssp. superbum (*6 )。毋過這五个亞種的學名攏猶未收入 iNat 的資料庫裡。)

累積超過 100 個物種觀察記錄的成員:Tyus Ma

Tyus Ma (@tyus) 於九月24日加入了 iNaturalist 之後的短短一周內,就在今天(十月一日)中午前累計上傳了超過 100 (101)個蜻蛉目物種的觀察記錄。Tyus 觀察記錄十分精彩,令人目不暇給,不僅物種多樣性高,攝影更具有專業水準;若只看他的記錄會令人懷疑圖鑑上那些標記「稀有」的物種是否描述有誤。

Tyus Ma 也成為了繼 fangshuohu 之後,第二位累積超過 100 個蜻蛉目物種觀察記錄的成員。而這兩位殷勤的蜻蛉目觀察者也在上周接下了本專案 curator 的任務,相信由於他們的加入,我們的專案水準能大幅提升。

恭喜 Tyus Ma 達到累積 100 個物種的里程碑,也謝謝你對專案的付出。
.
.
Tyus Ma, the member with obs of more than 100 species
========================================
Tyus Ma (@tyus) shortly after registered as an iNat user on Sept. 24, he has been uploading some amazing obs showing rich diversity of dragonflies and damselflies in Taiwan with very fine photographing. Subsequently, in a week time, he accumulated 101 species of Odonata by noon of the first day of Oct. Tyus, therefore, became the 2nd member who accumulated more than 100 species, after fangshuohu. Both Tyus Ma and fangshuohu are now the curators of the project. With both of them added to the capacity of curator, the development of the project is expected to be promising.

Congratulations to Tyus Ma for achieving the milestone of 100 species and thank you for your contributions.

累積超過 100 个物種觀察記錄的成員:Tyus Ma
======================================
Tyus Ma (@tyus) 佇九月24日加入了 iNaturalist 之後的短短一禮拜以內,就佇今仔(十月一日)中晝前,累計上傳了超過 100 (101)个蜻蛉目物種的觀察記錄。Tyus 的觀察記錄非常精彩,予人目不暇給,毋但物種多樣性真高,攝影更加有專業水準;若干焦看伊的記錄會使人懷疑圖鑑裡遐的標記著「稀罕」的物種敢有毋著。

Tyus Ma 嘛是佇咧 fangshuohu 之後,第二个累積超過 100 个蜻蛉目物種觀察記錄的成員。這兩位骨力的蜻蛉目觀察者嘛佇咧頂禮拜接任本專案 curator 的任務,相信有in(人因)的加入,咱專案的水準會有顯著的提升。

恭喜 Tyus Ma 達到累積 100 个物種的坎站,嘛感謝伊對咱專案的付出。

Month End Report, Sept. 2019 / 九月份的報告

Month End Report, Sept. 2019 **
2019 年九月份的報告 (台/TW)
.
Statistics as of September 30, 2019
.
....item......... ....number.... comparing with Aug... (MoM)
...........項目 ......................... 數量 ...........增加/減少(比列)
observation 觀察記錄: .....8,162...........+505....(-58.1%)
species (& ssp) ..物種: ...135(138).....+3
people........參與人 數:......630.............+53...(-51.4%)
member..專案成員數:.......94................+7.....(40.0%)
.
The number of obs added to the project in September shows great decline, only 42%- of last month, which translates into 58% MoM decrease. But comparing with last Sept. the YoY growth is still considerable, from 344 obs in 2018 to 505 this year, an increase of 46.8%. The decline should result from the end of summer vacation. As far as the odonate watch is concerned, there might only be a month of golden time left.
.
九月份咱專案收錄的觀察紀錄顯著的減少,共頂个月比起來,猶無到 42%,所以是 58% 的衰退;毋過參舊年九月比起來,是按 344 个增加到 505 个,猶是有 46.8% 的成長。衰退可能是因為暑假結束矣的關係。以觀察田嬰來講,可能干焦賰一個月的好時機爾爾。
.
Some of Sympetrum species logged from the northern part of Taiwan on iNat recently; those were usually considered as "vagrant". However, besides sighting reports, there seems no further research conducted to verify such "vagrant" hypothesis. Widely cited researches in local publications such as Ishida et al (1988)*(1) & Sugimura et al (1999)*(2) were in fact rather remote, let alone those were Japanese researches conducted in Japan.
.
最近佇 iNat 頂仔有一寡佇台灣北部紀錄著的紅田嬰「赤蜻屬(Genus Sympetrum)」刊出來(是 users 上傳的),這寡紅田嬰通常是予當做「迷蜓」(飛毋知路的田嬰),毋過除了目擊報告之外,到現此時敢若攏無進一步的研究來證實,抑是否定這號講法。佇台灣定定予引用的論文親像石田等人(1988)(*1)和杉村等人(1999)(*2)的研究攏是有淡薄仔久矣的,而且是日本人對日本在地的研究。
.
There were 3 new species added in Sept. Thanks for the contribution of fangshuohu @fangshuohu & Tyus Ma @tyus.
.
九月份有三个新的「種」收錄佇咱這个專案,感謝 fangshuohu 佮 Tyus Ma 的貢獻。
.
No...Common Name ........ Taxon ............................................. date (adding to Proj.)

#133. 秋紅蜻蜓 Sympetrum depressiusculum (Selys, 1841) ....... 9/20
#134. 微刺晏蜓 Cephalaeschna risi Asahina, 1981.........................9/30
#135. 針尾細蟌 Aciagrion migratum (Selys, 1876) ........................9/30

Sympetrum depressiusculum, the 133rd sp. proj collected, is one of those "autumn (Sympetrum) species" considered as "vagrant" along with the other 2, S. fonscolombii and S. cordulegaster. All these 3 are considered as "vagrant" in Japan as well*(3). Though the latest-published book on Odonata here*(4) only states these species distributed in the north; flight time starts from autumn to early winter; rarely sighted, mentioning nothing about "vagrant" hypothesis.
.
「秋紅蜻蜓」Sympetrum depressiusculum,咱專案所收錄的第 133 个「種」,嘛是一種秋天的田嬰,就是予當做彼寡飛毋知路的田嬰其中的一種。除了這隻,猶閣有兩隻:S. fonscolombii 佮 S. cordulegaster。這三隻佇日本嘛是予人當做飛毋知路的田嬰(*3)。 毋過台灣上新出版關於田嬰的冊(*4)內底就沒按呢講矣,干焦講遮的田嬰佇咧秋天時出現佇北部,真罕見。
.
The 134th & 135th obs were logged in the last hr of Sept. The former does not even be introduced in the 1st edition of pocket-sized "Taiwan 120 Dragonflies" *(5), so it's quite rare and, what's more, this obs is the very first of the species ever logged on iNat. As to the 135th, it was said to be uncommon in the book, flight time from Apr. to Dec., distributes in the north and north-east, mostly lives in standing waters like paddy fields and ponds.
.
第 134 和 135 「種」是佇咧九月份最後一點鐘上傳的,第 134「種」甚至無收錄佇「臺灣120種蜻蜓圖鑑」這本冊裡(*5),所以伊不是捷看的田嬰。毋但按呢,這个記錄嘛是 iNat 頂仔的第一个。閣來,第 135 「種」嘛是冊裡講罕見的,出現的時間按四月到12月,分布佇北部佮東北部,大部分生活佇靜水(無佇流的水),親像水稻仔田抑是埤仔這款所在。
.
Regarding the project management, there were seven new members (88th- 94th) joining in Sept., and 3 members inaugurated as curators as stated in prior post on the 2nd anniversary of the proj. Those 7 new members are as follows; welcome to joining in the project!
.
這个月有七位新成員加入,猶閣有三位成員來做咱專案的管理人(curator)(管理人的代誌已經佇咧進前的 post 講過矣);歡迎恁加入咱這个專案!這七位新成員是:

88. @buggi 9/4

** From this post, the title of this kind of monthly statistic update will be changed into "Month End Report, MMM.YYYY" as the proj. progresses to the 3rd year.

*** The posts are made in English simply because the manager is very poor at typing Chinese. Besides, in the early days of this proj, there were not as many Taiwanese users on iNat. The Taiwanese edition was appended a couple of weeks aft English one published.

Statistics as of August 31st, 2019

Statistics as of August 31st, 2019
.
....item......... ....number.... comparing with July
observation: .....7,657........+1,206
species (& ssp): ...132(135)...+0
people:..................577...........+109
Member:.................87...............+5
.
The number of obs added to the project in August is 2nd highest, 1,206 obs. In these consecutive 2 months, there were more than 1.2K of obs added. Thank you very much for your painstaking observations and generous contributions.
.
Since it had been 132 species or 135 sp & ssp recorded by the end of July, so it became much difficult to increase the obs of new species after.
.
Five new members (83rd- 87th) joined in August. Welcome! They are,

The 1st member with obs of more than 100 species

fangshuohu (@fangshuohu) accumulated more than 100 species of odonates observed at this project on Aug. 8. In fact, this record should have achieved a wk earlier if I "collected" his obs timely.
100 species, what a significant milestone! Congratulations! And thank fangshuohu for uploading these wonderful observations.
Keep on the good work!

第一位累積超過 100 個物種觀察記錄的成員
=================================
於8月8日 fangshuohu (@fangshuohu) 在本專案中累積了超過 100 個蜻蛉目物種的觀察紀錄。事實上,這個紀錄應該在一星期前就達成了,只是我沒能適時地把這些記錄加到專案中。
100 個物種,是一項不小的成就。很令人興奮!恭喜!十分感謝 fangshuohu 上傳這些精采的記錄,也期待以後有更多的蜻蜓與豆娘記錄與眾人分享。謝謝 並祝
百尺竿頭更進一步。

El primer miembro con observaciones de más de 100 especies
=============================================
fangshuohu (@fangshuohu) acumuló más de 100 especies de odonatos observadas en este proyecto el 8 de agosto. De hecho, este récord debería haber alcanzado una semana antes si "recolectara" su obs a tiempo.
100 especies, ¡Qué hazaña! ¡Felicidades! Y gracias a fangshuohu por subir estas maravillosas observaciones.
¡Buen trabajo!
