Most of the specimens uploaded through this account are held within the K&C Coleoptera Collections, the majority of the carabid collections are held in Oregon, while zopherid, tenebs, and most other beetles are in the California holdings. Many of the studio shots posted of carabids from states and provinces along the West Coast after July 2023 are also being used in the steady creation of our Carabidae and Zopheridae of the North American West Coast website. (Just 'Carabidae and Zopheridae' if you search for it on google.)

Second year high school student, avid collector of Carabidae and some Staphylinidae. My primary focuses within Carabidae are Platyninae, Nebriinae, and Trechinae, though I have experience with all subfamilies which occur in North America, Europe, and much of Asia. (I am a partial traitor, as I work extensively on Forficula dentata and F.auricularia in the Americas). I am in the middle of writing three manuscripts that I hope will be published within the next year. As well as a much larger project which I am working on heavily almost daily with my partner K.Wooten, where we are compiling hundreds of carabid and zopherid species from the area between Alaska and SoCal. The steadily growing synoptic collections are held in Oregon and California (99% of the carabids are in Oregon, while 98% of the zophs are in California). These are in turn being used in the creation of an identification website intended to be used by enthusiasts/hobbyists, the general public, and experts alike. The site has been made public, though as of January 1, 2024, is only about 38% completed. K and I continue to work on building upon, updating, and improving the site daily. All records in our combined collections are available if the data is requested via email. We welcome all and any donations and trade/swap/exchange offers involving specimens from our target range, but specimens from certain parts of the world may be turned away.

I primarily use iNaturalist for uploading records, as well as giving IDs

Our incomplete website, we are still in the early stages, but published it due to collaboration issues with others, please contact us if you wish to assist in any way.
