Mainly an identifier but beginning to contribute observations. I mainly focus on documenting ants but I have recently been blacklighting for beetles and flies. I am still in the process of going through all Virginia Formicidae; if you need ID help for any eastern US and Canada ants, please don't hesitate to tag me.

IDENTIFICATION:
Specializing in the Aphaenogaster of eastern North America

Also focusing on the identification of Camponotus (Myrmentoma), Nylanderia, Crematogaster (Crematogaster), Colobopsis, and Temnothorax of the Eastern Seaboard

I am interested in learning identification of Stenamma, the Formica pallidefulva-group, Formica sanguinea-group, and Formica integra-group.

OBSERVATIONS:
I keep the vast majority of the beetles, flies, and ants I collect. The beetles, ants, and large flies are pointed and the small flies are slide-mounted with glue.
