Ichneumonidae: sawfly parasitoids (subfamily Ctenopelmatinae)

December 7 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Ichneumonidae: sawfly parasitoids (subfamily Ctenopelmatinae) Indoor Workshop – Gavin Broad

Gavin Broad is a principal curator at the Natural Historry Museum and works on ichneumonoid wasps. He likes parasitoid wasps and hopes you will too.

The ichneumonid subfamily Ctenopelmatinae are almost all parasitoids of sawfly larvae. This is a morphologically diverse group and there are more than 50 genera in Europe and plenty of species in Britain. The lack of good keys for identifying genera has often been the main obstacle to more people getting familiar with ctenopelmatines. A new key to genera will be introduced and the anatomy of ctenopelmatines explored.

Whilst there is no charge for our workshop, nor any need to be a member, by joining you ensure these workshop can continue to be offered.
