About me

I am a taxonomist and a curator of National Zoological Museum of China, Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. I study Chinese fauna of Cerambycidae, especially the subfamily Lamiinae, and especially the tribe Saperdini. For Saperdini, I try to cover the Oriental region, not only within China.

In this Rubenstein Fellows projects, species will be clarified (taxonomic problem, distribution, citation, ecology and biology if have, research history) before upload to the website. Based mainly on the matching project “Study on the Systematics of Saperdini (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae) from China and adjacent areas”, saperdine beetles from China will be shared on the website, with good quality pictures based on well identified material. Meanwhile, some literatures in Chinese or published in Chinese journal will be shared, and be translated into English if needed. Except the tribe Saperdini, some other species will be pre-considered, such as the species whose types are deposited in IZAS, species with bad original description, species required by longicornists.
