here are the inverts (luckily I had most of this list already compiled as a review of what I have acquired this year). Please let me know if I missed anything. I have included extinct inverts here, but can happily remove them if need be. I thought I'd start with them for completeness.

I added the Death Valley set. I dont think the critters in the waterhole are actually part of it, even so I wouldnt consider that an 'invert' figure, likewise the foodset. Those same butterflies are features in the Butterfly set so that covers that specific figure.
