Society Information

The Royal Entomological Society exists to promote the dissemination of knowledge in all fields of insect science. It is the principal society in the United Kingdom for professional entomologists, and has overseas members, as well as a strong amateur membership


The Entomological Society was founded in 1833 and granted its royal charter by Queen Victoria in 1885.  In 1933 King George V granted the right to add the word 'Royal' to the title. Many eminent scientists, Darwin and Wallace to mention but two, have been Fellows.  Through the years internationally recognised entomologists have been numbered among the Fellowship.


The Society comprises Fellows and Members:

Fellowship is open to entomologists who have made a significant contribution to their science.  Fellows are entitled to the title Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society.  

Membership is open to all who have a genuine interest in entomology.  Membership does not require academic qualifications.
