Promoting the study of Millipedes, Centipedes and Woodlice in Britain & Ireland

British Myriapod & Isopod Group aims to actively develop identification, training and recording relevant to improving the knowledge and conservation of centipedes, millipedes, pauropods & symphylans (the Myriapoda) and woodlice & waterlice (the Isopoda).

Field Meetings

We hold an annual field meeting to which all are welcome, beginners and experts alike.

Recording Schemes

The group is also responsible for three National Recording Schemes, one each for centipedes, millipedes and woodlice & waterlice.

Species information

There is a page for each British and Irish species of centipede, millipede and woodlouse and waterlouse and the terrestrial landhopper. It is intended that each page will include a detailed account for each species, including distribution map, images, and identification hints.
