B. Christian Schmidt, Ph.D.
My primary research focus is on the taxonomy, systematics, and diagnostics of cutworm moths and their relatives (Noctuoidea). I am also interested in cryptic species complexes, species boundaries, biogeography, faunal inventories, evolutionary systematics, and Lepidoptera conservation..
