About me

I am the curator of Hymenoptera in the New Zealand Arthropod Collection (NZAC), Landcare Research in Auckland, New Zealand. I am currently working on parasitoid wasps from the families of Ichneumonidae and Braconidae, but I have an interest and ecological background in ants and social wasps. Hence the initial focus of this site on "stinging wasps" (Aculeata) such as social wasps, ants, bees, and other small groups from New Zealand.
