iNaturalist is a social network of naturalists, citizen scientists, and biologists built on the concept of mapping and sharing observations of biodiversity across the globe. We have created a Project on iNaturalist to record observations of snow flies.

You can follow the steps in the visual guide below to join our citizen science project on the iNaturalist app. Doing this will allow scientists to track observations of snow flies from across the globe.
