Guest: Danilo Hegg

Topic: “Creatures of the night”

Based in Dunedin, Danilo Hegg shares his time between part-time employment for Federated Mountain Clubs and taxonomic work on New Zealand Orthoptera. He has authored or co-authored scientific publications describing 14 new species of cave wētā and is part of the expert panel working on the assessment of the conservation status of New Zealand Orthoptera for the Department of Conservation.

A keen tramper and mountaineer, Danilo loves spending time outdoors, and documenting the natural environment with his camera. He has particular interests in alpine environments, and in photographing invertebrates.

Chasing auroras first, invertebrates next, has meant he is spending more and more time photographing during the hours of darkness. In this talk, he will focus on New Zealand’s nocturnal invertebrates.
