BENHS Weekend Training Workshop: An Introduction to UK Sawflies
06 April 2019 10:00 - 16:30
Location: British Entomological and Natural History Society, The Pelham-Clinton Building, Dinton Pastures Country Park, Davis Street, Hurst, Reading, Berkshire, RG10 0TH, UK.
An introduction to Sawflies (Hymenoptera Symphyta)
Workshop Leader(s): Andrew Halstead (Woking), John Grearson (Ashton Keynes).
The workshop is an introduction to the identification of adult Sawflies (Hymenoptera Symphyta) for beginners, as well as helping those wishing to tackle more difficult genera. The workshop will deal with identification to family level and to the most conspicuous and easily identifiable species. Keys to families will be used on the day and you are more than welcome to bring along any specimens that you would like to work on or need help with.
The aim of the BENHS training workshops is to open up the facilities of the collections both at the BENHS Pelham-Clinton Building at Dinton Pastures, Reading and the Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity (AMC) at the Natural History Museum, London and are designed to support fellow invertebrate recorders, be they experienced or novices by providing an informal setting for developing your identification and/or recording skills. As the sessions are informal events you are welcome to come for as much or as little time as you wish.
There is no prerequisite for attendees to have attended one of our previous courses and all are free of charge to attend for AES members. Booking your place early is recommended as workshop places are limited to (20 people). All we ask is that people book in advance by emailing me and letting me know that you wish to attend so I can reserve a microscope and bench space for you on the day.
