Mission Statement

The British Myriapod and Isopod Group (BMIG) collates information about millipedes, centipedes, woodlice and similar species occurring in Britain and Ireland. Through its recording schemes, BMIG works with amateurs and professionals to ensure that reliable information about the species, and their habitats, is collected and made available. BMIG aims to enable accurate identifications, to publish distribution maps, to carry out research, and to encourage interest in these groups and their conservation through its website, newsletter, journal and field meetings open to anyone.
