This is the rescheduled workshop from November 17th 2018.
Gavin Broad (NHM), Mike Fitton (NHM). This workshop will provide an introduction to the natural history of nocturnal ichneumonoids (both braconids and ichneumonids). The aim of the workshop is to increase confidence in this parasitoid wasp families identification. and introduces the subfamilies of the large hymenopteran family, Braconidae. With over 1,300 British species in 28 subfamilies, braconids are frequently collected, especially as parasitoids of Lepidopteran larvae. We will introduce the subfamilies, with keys, and point to the most useful species-level keys.
