Identifying and recording Soldierflies and their allies


18 January 2014 10:30 - 16:00

Location: Natural History Museum, Kensington, London, UK.

Event description

Soldierflies and their allies (including Bee-flies, Robberflies, Stiletto-flies and Horseflies) form an attractive group of flies, with fascinating life histories. Many of the species are large and distinctive, but as with most insect groups there are others that are more challenging to identify. This workshop will introduce the group and take you through the steps required to gain experience of identifying the species, based on the keys in "British Soldierflies and their allies" (Alan Stubbs and Martin Drake), the second edition of which is due to be published soon. Much remains to be learnt about soldierflies and their allies, and the workshop will also cover how you can get involved with the recording scheme for the group.
