Greetings!

I'm new to this website so apologies if I'm doing this in a strange way, any comments regarding that are welcome.

I'm currently working on a project at the Univerity of Groningen that aims to describe Arthropod diverity on Svalbard, we have a large number of samples that I will attempt to identify under the microscope and preferably I would be able to identify all of these specimens to their phylogenetic family level.

However, since I am completely new to insect identification some of you might be well able to discern the families where I am not able, and because of the relative rarity of a research regarding Svalbard Arthropods perhaps some of you are interested to help.

I will upload pictures in cases where I am uncertain, and if any of you can help me out that would be great. I can also keep you posted on any results in case anyone is interested.

I've added a picture of previously identified specimens as well as the study area, so people can get an idea :)

Thanks in advance,
Jesse
