Biography:

I am a hymenopterist that is focused on the systematics and biology of velvet ants (Hymenoptera: Mutillidae). Though mutillids are my primary focus, I am passionate about all aculeate wasps.

I don't usually comment on IDs these days when I'm tagging and moving images around. If you have a question about my ID, please email me.
