Tanyptera Trust - Centipedes Webinar

    End time

    Online via Zoom


    Centipedes (Chilopoda) are an intriguing group of animals that look superficially very similar, but in-fact there are over 50 species found in Britain. They are carnivorous and therefore a significant predator of a range of other organisms. They are easily overlooked because of their secretive lifestyles in soil or under bark but are an important component of an ecosystem. This webinar will look at their general lifestyle and the key characters used to identify them. Centipedes can offer some initial difficulties for the beginner when identifying species, but a few simple pointers and the ability to count up to 100 will help you to quickly get to grips with many species! This webinar complements the previous one on millipedes and will again be based on the British Myriapod & Isopod Group digital guide. The content will be ideal for a beginner and you do not need to have attended the previous webinar to participate.  Register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/centipedes-webinar-tickets-136780280501
