An avid amateur Paleontologist/Malacologist/Marine Biologist/Marine ecologist in West Auckland, New Zealand.

I just love collecting, learning and researching about molluscs and fossils.

Currently I am working on IDs of worldwide mollusks to increase reliability on those observations and correct mistakes.

・Reason of why I am adding many ID's to old observations, even if they are already identified and being "research grade"
On Inaturalist, it is not uncommon to see mistake identifications and some mistake agreeing ID's. It happens often when someone who is not confident with a taxa agrees with previous ID's without being sure that it is the only species it could be (by just assuming that previous ID is correct, for example)
Because these mistakes can not be eliminated, I go though these old observations and agreeing for correct ones, suggesting a new ID for the ones I find incorrect.
Please be aware of that I only add ID's when I am fairly sure that it is correct with evidence.

Although I sometimes add tentative ID's with some note, it is a rare case.

Personal profile:
I am a 14 years old and I have lived in Japan for 12 years until I came to New Zealand where I currently live.

I have been extremely interested in paleontology since I was 5 years old, and my interest extended to malacology, which is the study of recent and fossil molluscs (a group of animal including snails, bivalves and octopuses).
I am also interested in general Zoology (Echinodermology etc) and Botany, Mineralogy and Geology.

I love exploring intertidal habitats at low tide, or just simply walking beaches, mainly to find Molluscs and other obscured marine organisms.

Taxon Changes
As a curator, I update Inaturalist's database to the newest taxonomic tree, based on Molluscabase. Feel free to mention me if any taxon changes of molluscs are needed.

Disclaimer
・ I mainly post uncommon or interesting species which is not commonly observed by other observers, instead of common species which can be observed by anyone.
Please be aware about it when you see my observations. It means there is no proportional between the rarity of the species and the number of my observations of species. (For example, I might have only one observation of a species which is very common and very easy to find, even though I have multiple observation of a very rare species)

・Feel free to correct me if I made any mistakes in English as it is my second language :)

What I identify on Inat :
・Worldwide Molluscs; especially Tonnoidea, Cypraeidea, Conidae
・Any Mollusc from New Zealand and Japan
・Some other NZ marine invertebrates
I am rather weak at any land snails and molluscs from other countries, but I try my best for those things as well as my priorities.

Feel free to mention(@) me for any identification help, or if you disagree with my ID. I like having discussion for IDs, so please do if you have different opinions.
