Ground Beetle (Carabidae) identification workshop

5th March 2016 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

The seventh annual ground beetle workshop, with Mark Telfer (Bedfordshire) and John Walters (Devon), will help beginners and experts alike to find and identify British and Irish carabids.

The programme will start with a brief talk covering new topics of interest, followed by an identification session helping beginners to identify carabids to genus, as well as providing tuition on some of the more difficult genera for more advanced carabidologists.

We can cover the key techniques (carding, dissection, and handling carabids for field identification) and cover any identification problems, with a little prior notice.
