I do not ID Nematoda, despite the leaderboard - just Beech Leaf Disease

Bio
I speak English fluently and know some Spanish. I am a junior Entomology & Wildlife dual major at the University of Delaware with a particular interest in (very slowly) learning Cerambycidae worldwide. Please do not assume any IDs I make are 100% correct (if at all) - there are many others who are way more knowledgeable than I am, and I can only aspire to be that knowledgeable as I gain more experience. When I make mistakes, please message/@ me if I haven't retracted/corrected it, though I do check for my Maverick IDs every so often. Big fan of Tetraopes spp. - almost to a detriment.

Other interests include: cooking, martial arts, a cappella music, beatboxing, etc

Feel free to message me if you ever need someone to talk to
Crisis Text Line (USA)

Current Focus
Focusing on learning Western Cerambycidae: Lepturinae. Also trying to ID birds/plants since I am currently taking Ornithology/Botany, so please forgive/@me if I misidentify.

Big thanks to @nomolosx and @nathaniellev for inspiring me to be an absolute unit of a nerd, for advising my macrophotography setup, and for being my good friends

Please bear with me as I learn how to actually use a camera. Feel free to use my pictures, but please let me know beforehand.
