I'm a teen who currently resides in Arizona, I'm currently interested in ants. My main interests/favorites in this group are Army ants (Neivamyrmex and Acanthostichus especially), the genus Pheidole, and Attines (mainly the genera Trachymyrmex and Cyphomyrmex). I also have a soft spot for anything cryptic or rare.

I mostly use iNaturalist to provide range/habitat information on species of ants, and also as an outlet for my photography, but I just love getting out, searching for ants (or really anything for that matter) and taking photos of them, iNaturalist just gives me a good reason to do so.

I can ID most North American ants to at least genus.
