Working at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden as a Conservation Technician, mostly working under the direction of the Terrestrial Invertebrate Conservation Ecologist (aka we look at bugs under a microscope). If more images are needed for any of the observations made on San Clemente Island to get the observation to a finer taxonomic level, feel free to leave a comment on the observation or send me a message with what further imaging needs to be done and I'll update the observation with the requested images.

Currently focusing a lot of my IDs on ladybeetles on the west coast United States and Southern California flora. Not an expert by any means, but I'm learning, slowly but surely. Stream Shore by Fleet Foxes or Strange Trails by Lord Huron on Spotify.

Also currently working on a personal side project involving the ladybeetle species Cycloneda. So, if you're wondering why I'm adding IDs to year old IDs, there ya go.
