Beetle ID Workshop 1 (Entomology Section)
Sat. 14 September 2019 at 10:30 am
This beetle identification workshop will focus on Carabidae.
The Coleoptera are a huge order with over 4,000 species occurring in the UK but the Carabidae or Ground Beetles are much more manageable with only 360 species!
Firstly, what are Carabids? Come and learn that and the basics of identification of this fascinating group with one of the country’s experts, our chairman, Martin Luff. Martin specialises in this group and will lead this practical session on starting to identify them. Specimens will be provided as will microscopes (although we would welcome you bringing your own of both or either!).
There will be access to a kitchen and coffee/tea will be provided. Bring lunch.
This session will be limited to 10 participants so booking is essential.
