I tend to remain subscribed to all of my BugGuide images; this is a relatively simple way to contact me.

You can also reach me using messaging on iNaturalist.

I'm an undergrad at Brandeis University. I've done a bit of morphological work on Mydidae and other Diptera.

I've always been fascinated by arthropod biodiversity, and BugGuide is a tremendous resource for its exploration. Many thanks to everyone who submits such interesting observations and provides IDs.

Please don't hesitate to frass any of my images that don't contribute to the Guide.
