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

I love bugs! ✨
Entirely addicted to True Bugs (Heteroptera), currently mainly interested in Australia's terrestrial bug fauna, of which I curate some groups for iNaturalist. I enjoy combing through iNat's backlog for 1st records of species not yet added to iNat's taxonomy and other interesting finds. For some highlights (mostly Australia) see my Treasures From the Backlog.

Passionate about everything beautiful in this world, nature & sustainability, garden design, art & music, stars & space... Always on the road in nature things, as a citizen scientist and volunteer, or just bushwalking with my camera.

#OpenTo... - always interested in bug-related topics, projects, opportunities all over the world ... just in case someone happens to come across sth.
