Moth dissection course

Moth dissection.

At the last moth group meeting we were asked to look into the possibility of a course on genitalia dissection.

There are two possible routes.

  1. A professional ecologist will run a two day course for six participants. The cost would be about £100 per person.
  2. A local expert will do a one day course on macros only. Cost about £15.

However there is an additional cost for either course. You cannot do dissections without a microscope ( for most species ). We do not know of a venue which could provide these. To buy one, and there is no point doing the course unless you can continue dissecting, would be around £200. A suitable one can be seen on the Anglian Leps site.

Please let us know if you still want us to arrange something ( and state your preference) by e-mailing
