Overview
Approximately 750,000 insect species have been scientifically named and described. Millions of new ones are yet to be discovered. Please don't be disappointed if there are no images or text for your favorite insects. Our task will take many years to complete. Much of the information so far assembled concerns bees, ants, butterflies, and parasitic wasps in the families Braconidae and Ichneumonidae. Most of this page's other links are a skeleton waiting for information to be added about this most wonderfully diverse group. Please contact John Pickering if you wish to contribute to this effort.
