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.

An Introduction to Groundbug Identification

20th March | 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

Free

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

This identification workshop presents an opportunity to look into more detail the second largest group of terrestrial bugs in Britain comprising around 90 species. Our tutors, Jim Flanagan & Tristan Bantock run the two national recording schemes for terrestrial bugs and will be able to provide participants much knowledge and experience in becoming more familiar with this group. In addition to the usual microscope facilities there will be specimens available for examination from the Museum’s collection as well as some from the tutors own personal collections. There will also be draft species identification keys for use to aid participants in naming specimens. The main aim of the workshop will be to help participants recognise a range of species in the field that can be identified with some relative ease and hopefully pass on these records to the national recording scheme.

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.
