I am the Curator of Entomology at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. I enjoy dabbling in identification of most families of Coleoptera, particularly in small-bodied or otherwise unpopular groups. However, I am a specialist in Phalacridae and, more recently, Melyridae: Dasytinae. I have significant experience with identification of Carabidae as well.
