Just looking at the stats -

Australia is currently 3rd (will probably finish about 7th) with 428 species 
from 412 checklists.  The United States is currently first with 556 species 
from 15,972 checklists.  They will probably be overtaken before too long by 
India with is on 487 from 1039 lists.  The eventual winner will probably be a 
country such as Costa Rica - which currently has 303 species from 51 checklists.

At the moment, Steve Davidson is the top placed Australian with 111 species (in 
fifth place, with the top person in the world submitting 140 species).  Other 
top Australians include Karen Rose on 82 species, Marie Tarrant on 81 and Bruce 
Wedderburn on 75.

There don’t seem to be too many WA submission from outside Perth (a couple 
Broome and the from the Pilbara).  Not sure if the Hudwit is on the list yet.

The most interesting location so far appears to be an island near the Antarctic 
Peninsula  …
