Species of the Moment
British Myriapod and Isopod Group (BMIG)
Aims to improve awareness and knowledge of centipedes, millipedes, pauropods & symphylans (the Myriapoda) and woodlice, waterlice & intertidal isopods (the Isopoda) in Britain and Ireland.
There is a page for each British and Irish species of centipede, millipede, woodlouse & waterlouse (including the terrestrial landhopper) and intertidal marine isopod. The aim is to include a brief account for each species, including distribution map, images, and identification hints.
We hold an annual field meeting. All are welcome, beginners and experts alike. See Bursaries below.
BMIG Bursaries have been introduced to help towards the costs of attending the annual field meetings. More information here.
Why not join us? Membership is free. Please complete the online application form.
