The identification of insects is not fundamentally different from the identification of birds, fish, mammals, flowers, trees or any other form of life. It is simply a matter of knowing what to look for and being able to see it. Insect identification is made difficult by the tremendous number of different species.
Like all living things, insects are grouped together based on similar characteristics. The Animal Kingdom is divided into Phylum. The Arthropod Phylum contains animals that have an external skeleton. It is divided into four subphylum; the largest is the Insecta, or insects. It, in turn, is divided into twenty-six orders. The orders are then divided into families, which are divided into genus.
