Caterpillar Eating Cacti
These photgraphs show damage to a cactus (Schlumbergera sp.) done by the caterpillar of the Light Brown Apple Moth Epiphyas postvittana (Walker, 1863).
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
