Biology student (ULaval) from Lac-Beauport, Quebec, Canada

Graduated bioecology technician and biologist, working on beetles diversity projects in the Laurentian Forestry Center in Quebec City, and collecting and IDing insects since 2014 from all over the world. My main interests are on the fungus-related beetles, saproxylic beetles, Staphylinoidea and ground beetles (Carabidae).

I am starting a Master with the Université Laval and the Laurantian Forestry Center concerning the impacts of the BT watering for the eastern spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana) on the un-targetted insects communities, with special interest for the saproxylic beetles and the other Lepidoptera. I've worked on several projects of entomological inventory in Central America.

I do my best to provide accurate identifications, but I'm still learning many things on many groups, and I'm always more than happy to be corrected!
