BACKGROUND:
Interested in nature since childhood days, I started my career of natural interest mainly with amphibians, had the chance to work with german reptiles and later studied spiders (sociality in Stegodyphus spiders) to cure myself from a slight arachnophobia, which turned into never ending awe and fascination for those amazing creatures.

I am orginally from Germany, lived and photographed in the ecuadorian Andes in 2019/20, lived in Cairo/Egypt 2020/21 and live currently in Colombia, so my records are mainly from those places in the world.

COPYRIGHT:
I am generally fine with my pictures being used outside iNat. It would just be nice, if you could let me know and credit me (please contact me for details), if you do so. Thanks!

TAGGING:
I am also fine with me being tagged and I am happy to help if I can. My specialty are spiders and as I developed this interest while living in Germany I am most knowledgeable in that region and Europe. I however do IDs of certain spider taxa all around the world and am often at least able to give a rough ID.

If you have some time, I always appreciate if you browse through my OBSERVATIONS THAT NEED ID OR CONFIRMATION BY TAXONOMIC GROUP:
