We hold free and heavily subsidised invertebrate workshops and webinars 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 run an invertebrate recording day programme to bring together the invertebrate recording community and facilitateย improvements to baseline data coverage at selectedย important / under-recorded sites.

Sawflies Webinar

14th November 2020 | 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

There are around 250 species of Sawfly in Britain, all of which have plant-feeding larvae. A few are garden pests but most feed as larvae on non cultivated plants. This webinar will include a talk on the biology of sawflies and the characters used to identify them.

Our Tutor: Andrew Halstead worked for the Royal Horticultural Society for 41 years as their Entomologist at Wisley Garden in Surrey. He has a long interest in sawflies and holds sawfly identification workshops for the British Entomological and Natural History Society.

We will end with an interactive question and answer session.

Please book your space via Eventbrite and you will be sent information on how to join the webinar.
