Is there an identification guide your society needs?

There are many wildlife identification guides or keys that either haven’t been written yet or would benefit from an update. OPAL is collecting opinions from natural history societies on what guides need to be produced.

It could be a guide aimed specifically at beginners or advanced users. We’ve already received a number of suggestions, including sawflies, soldier beetles and adult caddisflies.

We will use your suggestions to encourage development of these guides.

If you would like to make a request, you can submit your suggestion easily on the OPAL website via the link below.

We hope that together we can improve the identification resources available.
