I'm taking the General Entomology class at my school and we have to have a bug collection and it's worth about 30% of our final grade. The requirements are to have a minimum of 10 orders, 35 families, and 45 ecological categories. Ecological categories are things like Leaf Chewing, Plant Sucking, Vertebrate Parasite, Wood dwelling, cryptic coloration, stem borers, soil burrower, chemical defense, mimics, gall forming, agricultural pests, etc. As of now I have 18 different orders, 53 families and the only ecological categories I'm missing is a Seed feeding insect and a second Insect Parasite. Anyway, here's my collection for those of you that enjoy insects.
My collection box
Blattodea and Coleoptera
Those are the only insects I have pinned the rest are in vials and are pretty hard to photograph without some sort of microscope. Thanks for looking!
