Amateur but passionate student of coccinellids (ladybugs/ladybirds/lady beetles) and a minor expert on North American species, especially larvae. Some knowledge of South American, Eurasian, and Pacific species as well. I manage the coccinellid pages on BugGuide.net, have been consulted by the Lost Ladybug Project, and guest-curate the coccinellid collection at the Florida State Collection of Arthropods. My current project is writing and illustrating a field guide to the lady beetles of eastern North America.
