Ethan Beaver

Currently an undergraduate student at the University of Adelaide (June 2020) and have been a volunteer in the terrestrial invertebrates section of the South Australian Museum for the past few years. My published research primarily includes the taxonomy and systematics of Lepidoptera, particularly the primitive family Hepialidae, however I have ongoing taxonomic projects concerning other moth and butterfly families as well as praying mantids (Mantodea) and am interested in invertebrate taxonomy and conservation generally. I am primarily interested in taxa from the general Australia/SE Asia/Pacific regions.
