Event description
Join tutor Richard Gallon at the World Museum Liverpool for this introduction to the British Harvestmen fauna.

About this Event

British Harvestmen are generally large arachnids which are easily encountered in a variety of habitats; from seashore to the summits of high mountains. With only 31 species and the availability of several excellent identification resources, it is surprising that these arachnids are so under-recorded. Several species new to Britain have been discovered in recent years.

This course will introduce you to the British Harvestmen fauna. Collecting and identification techniques will be given. There will be plenty of opportunity to practice identification with specimens and you are more than welcome to bring your own specimens to work with.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but participants should bring a packed lunch or use World Museum café

Adults only (18+)

Access: There are lifts between each of the floors and assistance dogs are permitted.
