Sorting session and identification workshop

12 August 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

The Leroy’s garage, Lodge 4, Boophane Lodges, 450 Anne Road, Ruimsig (It’s quite a nice garage!)   A great many specimens have been collected and preserved but they need to be properly labelled, and accessioned so that they can be deposited in The National Collection of Arachnida held in the Biosystematics department of the Agricultural Research Council, Roodeplaat.  This is one of the best ways to learn to identify spiders.   You will need to bring your own lunch.  We will supply tea, coffee vials, labels and instructions.  Booking ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL as numbers are limited due to space and the number of microscopes we can beg and borrow.  If you have one, bring it!  Please contact Astri astri@spiderclub.co.za or sms 073 168-7187.
