Specialisms

Braconidae, Ichneumonidae, curation, taxonomy

Summary

I curate the Ichneumonoidea and Vespoidea (except ants) collections. My main area of interest is the Ichneumonidae. Tens of thousands of specimens are being mounted, identified and added to the collection each year. My research interests focus on the taxonomy and diversity of Ichneumonidae, of various subfamilies and various regions.
