Biography:

I work as a research entomologist of the biology and chemistry department, Moscow Pedagogical State University. I study the anatomy of beetles larvae locomotory complex - endoskeleton and muscles. Also I am interested in Coleoptera larvae in general, especially xylophagous. Here you can find some of my larval photo made under microscope - may be useful to distinguish them on family level:

And also my personal page (in Russian, though):

I am ready to help with the ID of beetles larvae, provide with literature, exchange material, etc. Feel free to contact me any time!
