Research Interests

My research interests include systematics of Pterophoridae, especially larval hostplant associations, life history, morphology and taxonomy of larvae and pupae. Faunistic studies have concentrated on Pterophoridae of the Nearctic Region, especially in the southeastern United States, as well as Central America and the Caribbean Basin. Current projects include an inventory of the Lepidoptera of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and biodiversity studies of the Lepidoptera of Honduras and the Bahamas.
