Pot beetles: training for identification, surveys and monitoring

Kirkconnell Flow Nature Reserve

Pot beetles are a fascinating group of petal and leaf-eating beetles that get their name from the protective shell-like ‘pot’ that the larvae live in, created using their own droppings! In Scotland the Six-spotted pot beetle has only been recorded at Kirkconnell Flow in Dumfries and Galloway. This survey is an opportunity to learn more about these amazing leaf beetles and to help survey for this species to identify if it is still present at the site.

Free event, booking essential.
