    MONTHLY MEETING DATE CHANGED TO 4th TUESDAY

    Society meetings are open to the public with no admission charge

    Speaker: Jason Mottern, PhD
    Research Entomologist, USDA SEL
    c/o Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of Natural History

    Presentation: “Small, Squishy, and Hyperdiverse: Taxonomic Adventures with Aphelinidae and Encyrtidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea)”

    Jason Mottern’s interest in entomology started early (around the time he could walk?), as a child growing up in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. After spending his childhood and teenage years wandering the forest and working at the summer camp where he grew up, Jason decided to attend the University of California, Riverside, where he completed a Bachelor of Science degree in entomology in 1999. He then went on to Texas A&M University, where he studied the effects of parasitic phorid flies on the competitive interactions between red imported fire ants and native ants. After completing his Master of Science degree in Texas, Jason returned westward to work as a civilian pest management consultant for the U.S. Navy in San Diego, California. Around the time that the Navy decided to change his job to “hazardous waste management and environmental compliance specialist,” Jason decided to return to UCR to pursue a PhD in systematic entomology. Jason graduated from John Heraty’s lab in 2012 having completed a revision of the aphelinid genus Cales. He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the USDA-ARS Systematic Entomology Laboratory, where he mostly studies Encyrtidae, but still dabbles in aphelinids when nobody is looking.

    Thanks for the heads up. Sounds interesting. I did notice "insect cuisine" on your sign off. Is there anything being served at Senn Thai Comfort Food that one should be aware of

    No, just the regular menu. My research encompasses arachnids, insects, myriapods and use of insects as food.
