I observe, identify, and help curate taxonomy for bees, wasps, and additional wildlife, and have helped add complete species checklists including unobserved species for NYS and other locations (to use, select the Compare/Suggestions Checklist filter). My main interest is the discovery process of first online identifications of rare, described, undescribed, or new species, and new species locality records. My entomology and taxonomy experience and training so far includes a related Biology M.S., BugGuide.net Contributing Editor, and having helped a NYS pollinator survey, briefly volunteering at an insect museum collection, and leading a Thacher State Park pollinator bioblitz walk. If viewing my photos, the Has Photos filter is recommended. Along with pollinators, some of my photos explore urban ecology-related topics. Feel free to message or ask about my experience or identifications. I check all notifications although sometimes after a delay.
