I have a splitting headache :(


But on the bright side we are off again tomorrow (The Tajiks and several of us NHM staff) to Vauxhall Urban Farm on fieldwork. I must admit that it does seem that I spend an awful lot of time sucking up insects, and yes at the moment I am. This is a tad unusual though. I am usually more tied to my desk and as a result my desk is a mess (if anyone wants to volunteer to come and organise it I would be most grateful) and I have loans needing to do and visits to arrange from other countries, as well as a new short term contract to organise involving amongst other things fungus gnat genitalia :) they have all dried up and we need to rehydrate them…

I'm Erica McAlister, Curator of Diptera in the Entomology Department. My role involves working in the collection (I have about 30000 species to look after and over a million specimens), sometimes in the lab, and thankfully sometimes in the field.
