I'm an outdoorsman and naturalist by weekend, enjoying all aspects of nature. I'm merely an amatuer when it comes to entomology but I have been interested most of my life and have been attempting my own determinations for a long time, usually without much hope; that is until I found BugGuide sometime in late 2004/early 2005. This site has been and is a tremendous asset for me and I'm sure others as well. A heartfelt 'Thanks' to everyone, in advance, for any and all help.

Editors please feel free to frass any of my contributions.
