Primarily interested in the taxonomy of Canadian coleoptera, particularly groups that are understudied.

I fully approve of my pictures being used, shared, enjoyed. I only ask that they are used for non-commercial interests.

I have a masters in conservation biology, specializing in entomology. I studied deadwood-associated (saproxylic) beetles. I've got a tender spot for anything under 3mm and have particular interest in the family Latridiidae. My personal collection is now over 300 species of beetles from only Populus wood including new records for western Canada and some new species destined for description.
