I'm Dan Asaw, A self taught Coleopterist who resides in sunny Hertfordshire. This site is for my ramblings, resources and everything else related to entomology and my favourite group...Beetles. 


Currently I'm working on a guide to beetles in moth traps, which hopes to streamline the process of beetle identification to moth trappers, its by no means a finished article, but feel free to let me know what you think once its up and running!


Like all entomologists I love a new trapping method, I've had some really good success with vane traps, and have written up a 'how to' guide with some of my findings. 

Let me know if you have any rad ideas.

Getting Involved

The one thing I love more than beetles is talking about them! 

I have plenty of experience working with key stages 1 & 2   (I used to be a teaching assistant). I've done a few public talks and am always willing to do a few more! 


Atomaris linearis, Sphindus dubius and Panagaeus cruxmajor added to the beetles to light page. 

Thanks for your feedback!

Latest Project- Sherrards Park Wood

I've spent the last few years surveying Sherrard's park Wood in Welwyn Garden City for its beetles, I found some cool stuff and managed to give them a clearer understanding of the beetles they can find on site
