Beetles - Coleoptera Wings - 1st pr. modified into elytra Mouthparts - chewing Metamorphosis - complete - larva often called a grub Other - largest order
Beetles - Coleoptera
Butterflies - Lepidoptera Wings - Scale covered Mouthparts - Siphoning Metamorphosis – Complete, larva called caterpillar Other – also moths, 2nd largest Butterflies – wings upright, antenna w/ nobs, narrow body, day active. Moths – wings fold, feathery antenna, wide body, night active.
Butterflies - Lepidoptera
Ants & Bees - Hymenoptera Wings - 2 pr. Linked, membrane winged Mouthparts - Chewing Metamorphosis - Complete Other - Social, solitary or parasites, 3rd largest
Ants & Bees - Hymenoptera
Flies - Diptera Wings - only 1 pr. 2nd pr - haltares, for balance Mouthparts - lapping or biting Metamorphosis - complete, larva are maggots or wigglers (mosquitos) Other - disease carriers; 4th largest
Flies - Diptera
Dragonflies - Odonata Wings - 2 pair Mouthparts - chewing Metamorphosis - Incomplete, aquatic nymphs Other – predators, even as nymphs Damselflies can fold wings against body, narrow abdomen
Termites - Isoptera Wings - 2 pr. Straight if present Mouthparts - chewing Metamorphosis - Incomplete Other - All social, flagellates are symbiotes
Termites - Isoptera
True Bugs - Hemiptera Wings - half-winged, front leathery, back membranous Mouthparts - Piercing/sucking Metamorphosis - Incomplete Other - plant parasites, predators
True Bugs - Hemiptera
Cicadas - Homoptera Wings - 2 pr, straight if present Mouthparts - Piercing/sucking (plants) Metamorphosis - Incomplete Other – leaf and plant hoppers, 17 year cicada
Cicadas - Homoptera
Fleas - Siphonoptera Wings - n/a Mouthparts - Biting Metamorphosis - Complete Other - all parasites, flattened to move between hairs/feathers
Fleas - Siphonoptera
