Events

We hold free and heavily subsidised invertebrate workshops on identification, recording, curation and field craft to help boost the skills of beginners and experienced entomologists alike. These are complemented with drop-in sessions to facilitate mentoring and networking. We also organise invertebrate recording days across the region to bring together the invertebrate recording community and facilitate improvements to baseline data coverage at selected important sites.

Advanced Mosquito Identification

4th October 2019 | 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Free

Join Edge Hill’s University’s Thom Dallimore at World Museum to learn about techniques required to identify male mosquitoes using their genitalia. We will be making slide preparations and using microscopes and dichotomous keys to identity specimens to species level.

This advanced workshop builds upon the September 2018 Tanyptera Project workshop ‘An Introduction to Mosquito Identification’ and is only suitable for those with a strong interest in flies whom want to take mosquito identifications a step further.

Participants are encouraged to bring in specimens to study but there will be material available to use for everyone.

Tutor Info: Thom is currently developing a guide to the British mosquitoes (Culicidae) along with Dr Clare Strode (Edge Hill University) and the Field Studies Council (FSC), and conducts research into the ecology and taxonomy of British native and invasive mosquitoes.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but participants should bring a packed lunch or use World Museum cafe.

Adults only (18+)

Access: There are lifts between each of the floors and assistance dogs are permitted.
