Micro World of Insects

If we and the rest of the back-boned animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well. But if the invertebrates were to disappear, the world’s ecosystems would collapse. -Sir David Attenborough

Insect Observations by Location

Please keep checking back for new species to be added! 

Due to the number of species now documented, there is only a sampling highlighted on the map below. It's more to show where we have observed insects than the number actually observed which is in the 1000s. To explore more species, click the link-boxes above.

Note: we are a passionate team of nature enthusiasts, not a team of formerly trained entomologists, instead we rely heavily on various university entomology department sites, iNaturalist, BugGuide, AskAnEntomologist and other online resources for collecting our identification information. We strive to keep up with correct identifications but approval and verification must be done prior to publication.
