We will attempt to keep this website as up-to-date as possible with regarding the nomenclature and systematics of the Cicadellinae. To help, please contact us if you publish any taxonomic or systematic work on this group. In particular we ask to be informed of the designation new species or nomeclatural changes to species-group taxa. For general enquiries about the site or database, please contact one of the team.

Research Interests

The application of new imaging techniques within natural science research and collections, and the implementation of large scale digitisation workflows. The development of web-based applications for Natural Sciences research and curation. Along with the taxonomy and systematics of the Cicadellinae,  I also have interests in the taxonomy of deep sea bivalves of the Protobranchia group from the North East Atlantic, and the biodiversity and systematics of the British slug fauna.
