2/ Cave dwellers TROGLODYTES
3/" Painter men" perhaps? PINE MARTEN
4/ Robin Hood in 1973 FOX
5/ Dorset brewery logo... BADGER
6/ ...and Wiltshire cider BLACK RAT
7/ Falls in the Yukon OTTER
8/ Murgatroyd on the box,1968 to 1980 MAGPIE
9/ 19th Century PM?Taking the p! EEL
10/ Treacherous informer,or vice versa? GRASS SNAKE

Just leaves odd one out

Possibly 2 is the o-o-o. The others are all tautonyms. While troglodytes at the double represents the wren its unitary form denotes those at the bottom of the property ladder. Cave at emptor etc.

9 is o-o-o as the Eel is migratory in its breeding/life-cycle, going off to the Sargasso Sea. The other 9 creatures are all quite capable of living their entire lives without being absent from the British Isles at any time.

Ah, except the answer is Troglodytes, not Wren. Bugger!

Sorry Chris,whilst your reasoning is faultless,the answer I was looking for was troglodytes
(troglodytes) which is the latin classification of the wren. Full list is:

1/ British company produced local hero GOLDCREST - REGULUS REGULUS
2/ Cave dwellers TROGLODYTES - THE WREN
3/" Painter men" perhaps? PINE MARTEN - MARTES MARTES
4/ Robin Hood in 1973 FOX - VULPES VULPES
5/ Dorset brewery logo... BADGER MELES MELES
6/ ...and Wiltshire cider BLACK RAT - RATTUS RATTUS
7/ Falls in the Yukon OTTER - LUTRA LUTRA
8/ Murgatroyd on the box,1968 to 1980 MAGPIE - PICA PICA
9/ 19th Century PM?Taking the p! EEL -ANGUILLA ANGUILLA
10/ Treacherous informer,or vice versa? GRASS SNAKE - NATRIX NATRIX

Your turn, David. I reckon a troglodyte at least has a roof over his or her head!

Nope, David's gone AWOL on other threads too. The baton is lying on the ground, waiting for the first willing person to pick it up...
