I put Auchenorrhyncha above eating, sleeping, and drinking. I curate the "true hoppers" here and on iNaturalist (along with Kyle Kittelberger, who got me into this mess).

I am an undergraduate student working in Dr. Charles Bartlett's lab at the University of Delaware on planthopper systematics. I am currently working on the taxonomic classification of American Cixiidae, but my spindly fingers have somehow made their way into every group in the suborder.

here are a couple species I've added to the guide (whether they be first photos or pages added because of a photo with other examples present on the guide; living organisms only). is it for record-keeping? my ego? following what others do on their user account pages? who knows. perhaps I just find it rather fun.

why is my username "antarctica"? well who wouldn't want to have a BugGuide account representing an entire continent?

other accounts:
@udel-hoppers: photos from the UDel reference collection, not necessarily limited to hoppers (co-managed)
@australia: specimen photographs from museums or taken by myself [mostly defunct]
@nomolosx: photos uploaded from other sites to BugGuide with permission/based on copyright permissions [mostly defunct]
