Currently I'm working on Caribbean Calappa crabs ("box" or "shame-faced" crabs), Streptaxid snails from Western Africa and various other crustacean and gastropod groups in the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, the Netherlands. Fieldwork planned to Brunei Darussalam in September, October. Last years I worked on African Streptaxid snails in the genus Ptychotrema and described two new species of Odontonia (https://zookeys.pensoft.net/article/25277/), a caridean shrimp genus found in the seas around Indonesia. Interested in all invertebrate taxa, but special interest for mollusks and crustaceans.
