Something bugging you?

Syrphida (family), hoverfly.

Found a bug in your back garden, ants at the allotment or a spider on the stairs? Upload photographs of your find, tell us where you found it, the time of year and any notable behaviour, and our scientists and helpful volunteers will try and identify it for you.

Put a name to bugs that are commonly found in the UK. The term 'bug' is used widely for insects but our experts can also identify non-insect arthropods, such as spiders, centipedes, millipedes and woodlice.
