Still recovering but getting back into IDs - tag me if you need an ID!

Entomology student specialising in Australian mantises, but with a keen interest in all orthopteroid insects and of course all organisms! I used to post my own sightings on Bowerbird (http://www.bowerbird.org.au/users/34690/sightings) but now that the site is being shut down I've transferred them all over to iNat. I'm also woefully behind on sorting through all my photos, so most of my sightings will be at least two years old by the time I get to them! Follow me on Facebook for nature photography and entomological musings (https://www.facebook.com/YellowMondayMC/)

I currently do IDs for all the Mantodea of Oceania as well as for a variety of Australian taxa that are grouped together in this project. I'll get around to them all eventually but if I've missed one and you want an ID, please tag me!

I recently created a handy guide to help people identify the introduced South African Mantis (Miomantis caffra) in Australia that can be accessed here

I'll hopefully get around to all of the Australian Orthopteroids eventually, but in the meantime check out the project I've made for them: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/australian-orthopteroids
