Biography:

I am a retired (inactive) attorney with no science background. In 2012 I photographed a larva, (Acronicta atristrigatus) of which there were very few photographs, which was forwarded to David Wagner. Since then I have reared several larvae species for him. I have spent many hours of seat time looking at the moths of MPG and BugGuide trying to identify the moths that I have photographed at my home. I have also sent Melitara and other species to Richard Brown.
