Current Projects

At the moment the focus is on getting the website up and running in a very basic format, but with as much useful information as possible.

Links to people involved or interested in bristletails in the UK are particularly important. If you are working on any of these groups, or would like to get involved, contact me.

Expanding the links and species accounts, trialling the keys, contributing behavioural observations and your photographs (identified or not) would all be very helpful.

Having gratefull received a description of the relatively new addition to our fauna of Chater's Bristletail "Dilta Chateri, Bach, Mendes, Gaju and Molero, 1995" I would still be keen to discover more information about its discovery, behaviour, appearance in the field, distribution and current status.

I am also looking for information as to why Delaney thought petromachillis was a valid genus, and why it was then subsequently synonymized with petrobius maritimus.
