This two-day workshop will introduce participants to the diversity of flies occurring in Britain. Specimens will be used to practice finding and recognising key features that help to separate the various fly families.

There are over 100 fly families in Britain, containing over 7,000 species, so this workshop will focus on recognising families that contain larger sized species.

Our Tutor: Nigel Jones is County Diptera Recorder for Shropshire. He also co-organises the Flesh flies – Sarcophagidae Recording Scheme, the Empididae element of the Dolichopodidiae, Empididae and Hybotidae Recording Scheme.

Lunch is not provided but tea, coffee, water and biscuits will be available.
