Staphylinidae Meeting XXV

Meeting of the minds – I will be attending an annual staphylinid conference in Copenhagen. This is my first attendance and I will get the chance to meet familiar and new colleagues that all… well, work on staphylinids!

I will be presenting on some recent work on the Lomechusini of North America. There’s so much to cover that I will be narrowing my focus to what I consider to constitute the Drusilla-group of genera, a potentially monophyletic lineage within a broader contextual group that some call the subtribe Myrmedoniini.


I encountered some issues with my new “Pella” species description. At least I caught the problem prior to it getting published.
