I'm a biology nerd, naturalist, and wildlife conservationist in the Appalachian foothills of the southeastern United States. While I am interested mostly in the identification and photography of plants, fungi, and insects--I enjoy taking advantage of and learning from any opportunity that Nature provides me!

      Absolutely! They are actually pretty common here, but I always assumed that I wouldn't be able to ID them past genus level..so I never posted photos of them before :D That logic is terrible, I know. Anyhow, I went down a millipede rabbit hole and found that only two species occur in my area. These are pretty easy to ID due to their "ivory" appearance.
    2. Thank you! I hope I can see them emerge in spring!

      I'm definitely not skilled in IDing leeches, but this is absolutely fascinating!

      Will this help?
