My name is Rachel and I'm a PhD student at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. I am currently studying symbiotic viruses of Ichneumonoidea.
Previously, I studied Ophioninae of California and Flies of the Palmyra Atoll.

I have quite a bit of experience IDing insects from my time as a curator and research assistant for the University of California, Santa Barbara Invertebrate Zoology Collection. I've also taught some general insect ID workshops and created insect guides for research projects associated with UCSB.

When I am stressed out from grad school, I will comb through the unknown and undetermined in order to move posts along the ID pipeline.

If I am incorrect about an ID or I am bothering you with tags, please do not hesitate to let me know. No hard feelings at all :)
