If I don't already put it, please ask me for the reasoning for my identification, so that you only agree to things that you can also prove. (Also this just helps everyone learn more.)

Based in the Washington D.C. area.


I'm experienced in the identification in the US and Canada of certain groups in the following taxa:

(Sub)Families:
Syrphidae (especially Eristalini)
Cicadellinae (Proconiini and some Cicadellini)
Xylophagidae
Nemestrinidae

Genera (not included in those families):
Anthomyia
Megarhyssa
Clogmia
Magicicada
Xylomya
Lygaeus

I'm in the process of learning these taxa:
Mydidae
Anthracinae
Condylostylus
Physocephala


Refer to the Field/Photo ID Guide for Flies that @edanko and I maintain to learn how to identify your favorite species (with an emphasis on Syrphidae)! If you have suggestions or want to contribute/help make a guide, reach out to us!

Here's a list of my identifications by species that you can check out to see what groups I identify the most! (Note that this is of all time, not just recently.)
