Identification workshop: Spider-hunting wasps
No current dates available
This two-day workshop will look at the habitats, nesting and identification of the many genera of spider hunting wasps found in Britain.
Day 1 will concentrate on females, looking at the identification features that characterise the various genera with the opportunity to take specimens through relevant keys.
Day 2 will concentrate on males.
This is one of the more difficult aculeate families to work on, so the two days will only provide an introduction.
Our Tutor: Ian Cheeseborough is self-employed in the field of habitat management and entomological surveys, mainly in Shropshire. He has been studying Aculeate Hymenoptera – bees, wasps and ants for over 20 years.
