Disguised as an Environmental Attorney at a great Metropolitan Law Firm, have been collecting and studying insects since age 5--that makes 52 years of collecting as of 2010. Interested in all groups, especially fauna of New York and New Jersey. Special likes include all butterlies and macro moths ("macro" means I can get a pin in it), Cerambycidae, tiger beetles--whether or not classified as Carabidae, and all Hymenoptera except ants--which I hate, despite knowing they are probably the most important insects or maybe because of that.
