Soldierflies and allies (including robberflies, bee-flies, horseflies and others) include some of our largest and most colourful insects. Some are easy to find whereas others require dedicated searching, but these flies are within reach of anyone with an interest in insects. This workshop will provide an opportunity to get more familiar with the identification features, using microscopes and specimens, as well as providing an introduction to how to find and record these flies.

Led by Martin Harvey and Alex Dye.

This course is free of charge to attend for either BENHS members or non-members of the society.
