Rose Chafer (Cetonia aurata)
A rose chafer from my garden, I have seen a number of live individuals this year, more so than in previous years. I have also seen a large number in the nearby Windsor Great Park.
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.
