hello

i actively moderate hoppers (auchenorrhyncha excluding cicadas) here and on bugguide—mostly focused on the united states. i am a student (on a gap year as of writing) who plans on studying entomology, but i have a strong affinity towards planetary science. my interests lie in the interdisciplinary space between art and science.

you have my permission to use my images for any educational use (including on citizen science sites and boards) as long as you credit me. otherwise, contact me.

additionally, i'm a formless basin. an endless space of things displaced; excavated and moved elsewhere. i expand endlessly, causing all surrounding surfaces to cave; collapsing into the oblivion of myself. there's no space for the dust to settle, so it will drift on forever in its increasing entropy.

if you feel you need a human to talk to (or at), please message me; regardless of affliction or inclination.

some useful interwebs
Hoppers of North Carolina: a great resource for hoppers of the eastern U.S. (by @hopperdude215)
Planthoppers of North America: the number-one authority on north american planthoppers (by @delphax)
Treehoppers: the resource for generic to higher taxonomy of treehoppers
Dmitriev's 3i Database: most up-to-date authority on hoppers globally, updated by the world's leading hopper taxonomists (but refer to link 3 for membracids and refer to link 2 for new world fulgoroids).
BugGuide: if you have a notable observation, I will likely ask you to upload it here
Sharpshooter Leafhoppers of the World: a wonderful photographic resource for Cicadellinae. there are a number of errors, so make sure to cross-reference and do research before making an ID.
My Website: has some info, needs updating. I'll be working on a more detailed website in the future.
