Introduction
I study Biological Sciences but not finished. Currently working as a forklift driver and entomology is a hobby. I started this hobby in 2009, and I specialized in Heteroptera. Everything I learned I made it through the network. Today I'm Heteroptera expert in web BiodiversidadVirtual.org, and work on some articles for publication in our magazine: http://www.biodiversidadvirtual.org/taxofoto/bvnpc Colleagues needed they know of Miridae, the most complicated family. Thanx!
