Seed and Leaf Beetles

Chrysolina fastuosa by Adam Polednicek

The Chrysomelidae is a large family of beetles, many of which are brightly coloured, like little gemstones hidden in the vegetation waiting to be discovered. This workshop will introduce us to the family, including their ecology, life cycles and survey methods. We will be coached in the use of identification keys and shown examples of distinctive species to look out for in Cornwall.
