I spend a lot of time studying ambush bugs. While I certainly don't claim to be the expert, I imagine that, at the moment, I am among only a few people who have studied these bugs in any detail. So I guess it is my duty share what I know (or at least point you to a direction/reference).
I maintain this section as a summary of the natural history of these bugs for the sake of ‘everyday naturalists’. Hopefully, this also means that I can stay on the radars of other natural historians out there - several have contacted me in the past with invaluable information. If you want more technical/detailed information about my work, please visit my publications page. If you have questions or information to share, please contact me.
My knowledge is mostly restricted to the currently recognized species in Southern Ontario (Phymata americana & pennsylvanica; but also check out this *nice blog post* on the issues surrounding Identification), though I have been getting a bit more familiar with the other species in the group.
