I am a graduate student in Entomology at the Texas A&M University in College Station, TX.
In general you will notice my updates focus around updating the Sphingidae and Saturniidae families of moths. This is because I have access to pictures of these moths. While I may not be an expert on the individual species, I've noticed that uploading and making a semi-complete list of species encourages other users to come in and flesh out the details. An example of this is the Cecropia moth. Plus I feel that it's best to have an image accompanying the description of a species...so I'm just doing my part. If anyone has any questions/complaints (like if I am creating all my pages without something) feel free to tell me.
Update: I have stopped editing, maintaining, or adding content to Wikipedia for the time being. Partially due to time constraints, but mostly because I have spent so much time and effort cataloging obscure species with few references on the internet, and passing mention in scientific literature only to have entire weeks worth of work deleted because they didn't feel my stub page contributions were sufficient for an open ended online encyclopedia. There are simply too many pages up for me to maintain, and I every time I log in I feel like I have to repair the damage. Thanks to everyone who was appreciative of my efforts. If you have a specific family of insects you want, let me know. I still have access to a university insect collection, and would be more than happy to assist you.

I have currently have access to Texas A&M Insect Collection. Species in the collection and Lepidoptera I have raised comprise the majority of the pictures I have contributed to Wikipedia. Please click here to view the complete gallery.
I have created over 250 pages, for a list of those click here.
Pages worked on extensively
"soon" to be:
New page template; for anyone that wants to make any of the pages that I have yet to create.
