PhD week 64: Canterbury Museum

One of the things that I love about doing what I do is going to insect collections I haven't been to before, and discovering what cool things they have in them. Last week I visited the Canterbury Museum to look through their weevil collection to see what specimens of Irenimus they had. In the process I was able to identify a number of previously unidentified specimens, as well as correcting a couple of errors that had been made previously. There's not many jobs that can make a priceless national treasure even more valuable. and I'm lucky enough to have one that does!
