Guide to Eastern Sciapodinae + Mikie Green's mystery species

Hiya! I'm here to share some very good news.

My Guide to the Sciapodinae of the Eastern US and Canada has been published in the Fly Guide! I recommend you to link it to any identifications you make so that other users can learn more. Also, it would be great if you all could let me know if you notice any issues or have suggestions.

In other news, Mikie Green (@coolcrittersyt), a frequent attendee of our meetings, has posted a video on YouTube about the *Condylostylus* mystery species that he collected for me in Florida! Go watch it and leave a nice comment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_mk9UH0IkY

Thank you all for attending the Fly Guide Zoom meetings, and I hope to see you soon!

-Zachary

P.S. Also, I just hit 20k Condylostylus IDs ;)
