Bevan Buirchell

For the last 10 years been involved in taxonomy on Eremophila genus and have so far published 18 new taxa. There are more to come. Also interested in taxonomy of Tingidae in Australia and their co evolution with the plant genus Eremophila. Latest interest is with Lepidoptera in Western Australia.

I spend a lot of time travelling in the Desert regions of Western Australia so come across many interesting biota that most people never see. I have been collecting Mirides for Prof at UniNSW as well as helping PhD students with their field work.
