Just some random human who likes insects and other alive things, particularly cryptic things. My fascination was initially with ants but I've shifted over to termites, which has subsequently become my main focus in regards to IDing on this website. I am an amateur and have no formal background in entomology or isopterology and while I try my best regarding those IDs I am no expert.
