NHMWrkShp11: Introduction to Weevils (Curculionidae) identification

April 4 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Trainer: Mark Gurney.

This workshop will help you recognise the main groups and teach you how to identify some of the more common species. This workshop will provide an opportunity to get more familiar with one of the largest beetle groups, who have a reputation for being difficult. We will de-mystify these endearing insects and learn about identification features, using microscopes and specimens for close-up examination, as well as providing an introduction to how to find and record these beetles in the field.

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.

To take part on any workshop please contact:
BENHS Indoor Meetings Secretary and Training Workshop Co-ordinator:

Mr Stephen Lings, BENHS Indoor Meetings Secretary:
Email: lings24@btinternet.com or call M: 07854 793681 to book your place.

We look forward to welcoming you and helping you develop your entomological and natural history skills at one of this workshop on the day.
