UK and Iceland.

As an identifier, I am usually active in coarse European Diptera, shifting observations from order to family - feel free to tag me in in this context.

As an observer, particularly interested in Diptera, Collembola, and at the moment Hymenoptera. Also like to explore Bryophyta(especially liverworts) and lichens in the winter months.

Within Diptera have a particular fondness for less-recorded but more charismatic groups like Platypezidae and Miltogramminae. Broader interests tend to lie wherever there is active expertise which can support identification. Digging deeper into Ephydrids and Proctotrupomorpha at the moment.
