I have a bachelor degree in biology from Copenhagen University, and now im doing my masters in ecology.
I have a fondness for arthropods and I joined iNaturalist in early 2020. I've been putting in all observations made through the years that I remember the locations of, as well as a lot of new ones. I wrote my bachelor thesis on the Stenoplematoidea orthopterans of the world, now im focusing more on arachnids.

Curator of several projects on Danish spiders:

Currently working on mapping all Danish synantrophic spiders, as well as predict future species colonizations.

Favorite taxa:

  • North European Spiders - I cannot help with species outside Europe.
  • Scarabaeoidea
  • Butterflies
  • Primates
  • Orchids
  • Chelicerates in general

Secondary interests that i plan to delve more into in the future:

  • Orthoptera
  • Anisoptera
  • Milipedes
  • Crustaceans
  • "Primitive" plant groups (Gymnosperms, ferns, mosses and the like)
