Centipede Identification with Microscopes - Feb 2022

02 February 2022

Location: FSC Bishops Wood, Crossway Green, Stourport-on-Severn, DY13 9SE, UK.

Event description

There are 57 different species of centipede occurring naturally outdoors in the British Isles, many of which require microscopic examination in order to reliably identify to species. Join us to take your centipede identification skills to the next level.

This course provides an introduction to identifying centipedes using the FSC AIDGAP 'Key to the Identification of British Centipedes' by A.D. Barber. This includes a short presentation introducing the morphological features used to identify specimens to species level, followed by practical sessions guided by our expert tutor. During the lab sessions, you'll explore a wide variety of different centipede species, including both common species and rare ones that can be trickier to find in the wild.

Through a combination of taught classroom content and lab-based practical sessions, learners will gain confidence in using the identification key and preserved specimens to identify centipedes to species level.
