I'm an undergrad at Brandeis University. I've done a bit of morphological work on flies, particularly Mydidae. Otherwise, my IDs are mostly based on field experience, taxonomic literature, and interaction with experts. Many thanks to those who maintain this community!

Feel free to ask me to explain or elaborate my IDs. If something looks strange, I may have made an error.

I've prepared some notes on Diptera identification at https://sites.google.com/view/identifyflies

Many of my arthropod observations have been migrated along with their IDs from BugGuide.net; I am grateful for the input of countless folks at BugGuide. Before I discovered the "associated with" field I usually didn't add host plant on iNaturalist, but I almost always have that in my records.
