I am a Ph.D. student at North Dakota State University Under Dr. David Rider. I focus on the family Tingidae and other Cimicomorpha. Although my first images are a stink bug, I will start expanding what photos I have when I get access to a new camera.
I have spent hours in the USNM comparing types of Tingidae, but I do not have the years of experience that Dr. Laura Miller has.

I hope to be a world expert in this group and help provide keys to people struggling with identifications.
