The distinctive hairs on this butterfly allowed Natural History Museum scientist Blanca Huertas to identify it as a new species. You can read more here.
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.
