"You might remember this story from last August, when the discovery of a species of Waspthulu was announced. The researchers just published the first paper describing this species. It’s name is now Megalara garuda. "
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.
