Focus: True Bugs of Australia (Insecta : Hemiptera : Heteroptera)


Addicted to True Bugs (Heteroptera), chiefly interested in the Nabidae (Damsel Bugs) of the world and Australia's terrestrial bug fauna I'm curating for iNaturalist.

Nature-loving person based in Heidelberg/Germany, originally from Berlin. Biologist with majors in Ecology and Functional Genomics/Bioinformatics (TU Darmstadt & Frankfurt Uni/Buchmann Institute). Entomologist at the Julius Kühn Institute (JKI, German Federal Research Centre for Cultivated Plants), working on Biocontrol-related topics and DNA-Metabarcoding, and of course responsible for True Bug identification.
Passionate about everything beautiful, nature & sustainability, gardening, stars & space... Always on the road in nature things, citizen scientist and volunteer, or just bushwalking with my camera.
