I'm currently a biology & ecology student in Limoges (France), and transgender.
I'm learning arachnology on the side as a hobbyist, essentially focused on harvestmen (Opiliones), particularly Dyspnoi and Phalangiidae.
I mostly ID European species on here but feel free to tag me in any Opiliones observation if needed.
Other than that, I'm also quite fond of myriapods in general.

You're free to use my photos in publications, for sci-comm. and other such content. If you do and/or need some info, please let me know.

You can find me on Twitter

Helpful tips to make identification of harvestmen easier, if you're observing live specimens :

Try to include the following in your observations as often as you can :

  • A dorsal view showing the saddle and other markings, most useful for Eupnoan harvestmen. Some structures like the trident in Oligolophinae are also easier to see this way.
  • A side view will reveal the armature on several body parts (prosoma, opisthosoma, ocularium, pedipalps)
  • A front view isn't always necessary but recommended to better visualize the palps' morphology.

Shortcuts to some of my observations :

My tags :

  • My iNaturalist Firsts : First observations of a species on iNaturalist from me
  • Personal Favorites : Observations of mine that highlight a certain organism, behavior, life stage, etc. or that I just particularly like ; I use the "Favorites" tab separately for other people's observations
  • Photographic References for Opiliones : All harvestmen observations of mine I deem useful for ID purposes, if needed
  • Personal Collection : Specimens that I've sampled
  • ID Pending : Just an easier way for me to keep track of samples I have yet to ID
