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! Please don't hesitate to ask me questions or critique my IDs; I make mistakes sometimes.

I'm grateful to be tagged on observations of unknown or Dipteran pupae.

For help identifying flies, feel free to peruse my notes on Diptera Photo ID.

I have also begun working on this better illustrated guide:

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.
