Entomology has been a part of my life since I was a very small child, in fact I can not remember a time where I was not interested in both art and entomology! I started coming up with these comics as a blend of the two, and also to enter into the SciComm world. I want to share my knowledge of the insect world with others in a fun and enjoyable way! All of these comics have basis in real life, which is part of the fun of them, of course they also have a good deal of dark humor! Check out the Facebook Page for these comics and more!

Strepsipteran!

Entomological basis for the comic: Strepsipterans, or twist wing flies (although are not flies), are a parasitic species of various Hymenopterans. The female will remain neotenic and never gain wings, eyes, legs, living their entire lives inside their hosts. The males emerge from the host and can fly, they have only one set of wings like flies, with the other set reduced to halteres. But their forewings are halteres while in Diptera it is the rear.
