The British members of the family Scraptiidae includes some very common flower-frequenting beetles, which are difficult to identify because of their variability. The project will allow accurate identification of these beetles, and bring together all the information known about the biology and distribution of the species in Britain.

The main output will be a publication in the Royal Entomological Society and Field Studies Council, Handbooks for the Identification of British Insects series.
