Entomologist from Quebec, Canada

Working at the LFC (NRCanada) on insects diversity, I mostly use INat for my personnal specimens and collectings. My main groups of interest are rove beetles (Staphylinidae), click beetles (Elateridae), clown beeltes (Histeridae), butpretty much all the other families as well.

Don't hesitate to flag me for identifications, or any changes that are needed in the guide regarding beetles. I always try my best to identify from pictures, but I am still far from perfect and I'll always be glad to be corrected!

Feel free to contact me by DM or at for any other requests
