I enjoy taxonomy, don’t get me wrong, but there is nothing about taxonomic work that I dislike more than drawing and gathering morphometric measurements. I make sure that I have these two finished prior to writing my manuscripts, although I’ve cheated a little for this secret manuscript that I’m currently working on – I finished up the bionomic section.

I must catch up, therefore, I’m spending the first part of the morning taking more measurements. I finished up adult measurements last night, and today will be devoted to larval measurements… I’ve said too much…

I’ll part with this sneak peek image of the larva in question for my secret manuscript.
