Aculeate excel checklist + taxon designations...

I'm looking to update the Lancashire checklist for aculeates. I probably have most of the recorded sps for the two Vice Counties but could do with an excel checklist - similar to the BWARS site (national) checklist document - which has an additional column or addition of the cited taxon authority in brackets / italics for each sps (       ).

Anyone know if such a thing exists?...Before I start typing them out.

 

Cheers, Ben Hargreaves.

Possible affect of Harlequin Ladybirds on Ants and Wasps

Last year I noted a change in local ant and wasp populations in my garden and nearby allotment.

For the last seven or eight years the plum trees in both areas have been heavily infested by aphids.   These were well attended by the usual black ants.   As the season developed wasps also clearly had a great interest in the trees.   So much so that I had to be wary when doing any light pruning.

Identifying Bees with Steven Falk at FSC Slapton Ley, South Devon

The course will provide an introduction to bees, then a chance to identify them under the microscope using the dichotomous keys and images in the new field guide and also the resources available on Steven's British Bees on Flickr site. A field trip (weather dependent) will allow you to see living ones and develop basic collecting and field identification skills and better understand their ecology and conservation. Lots of fun, the only long faces allowed are those of garden bumblebees.

Dates: 20-22 July 2018
