I'm a professional entomologist with the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) and the Queensland Primary Industries Insect Collection (QDPC) in Brisbane, and have been working taxonomically on clerid beetles since 2004, mainly in my spare time. During several visits to major Australian museums (all but those in TAS and NT) and two trips to Europe to search for clerid types in England, France, Belgium and Germany, I documented and photographed type specimens of the majority of the described Australian clerid fauna. I was recently invited to join iNaturalist by a regular contributor for the purpose of assisting with clerid identifications, which I am able to do largely due to my collection of type photos.
