Bulk samples sorted prior to Diptera identification to family level.

We are able to sort bulk samples (from Malaise traps for example) into Diptera families, whilst separating out other Orders.

All sample sizes and formats covered.

We are happy to identify large or small samples either in alcohol or as pinned material. On completion of the task, voucher specimens will be returned along with a full list of the species present, numbers and sex of individuals within the sample.
