Curation scope
I am primarily interested in fungus beetles in the superfamily Cucujoidea (Coleoptera), especially those of the more highly derived Cerylonid-Series. I am considered a world authority on the families Endomychidae and Alexiidae, and I have additional expertise with several other families including Biphyllidae, Discolomatidae, Cerylonidae and Latridiidae.
