DPWrkShp1: Wasps, counting to three – 3 sub-marginals and a long petiole

November 9 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Trainer: Mike Edwards.

Come and learn to identify the genus of wasps Mimesa. The aim of the workshop is to increase confidence in these small wasps ranging in length from 4 to 15mm which are all distinctly with a long petiole. This workshop will provide an opportunity to get more familiar with the identification features, using microscopes and specimens for close-up examination, as well as providing an introduction to how to find and record these wasps.

There is no prerequisite for attendees to have attended one of our previous courses and all are free of charge to attend for either BENHS members or Non-members of the society.
