Key to the Orders of Insects

The following key, modified from Brues et al. (1954), is in accordance with the classification used in this book. A few comments are necessary regarding its use. The key is suitable for use with the adult and most larval forms of insects. However, the larval forms of the endopterygote orders are often difficult to identify and, if at all possible, they should be allowed to metamorphose to the adult stage. In some cases it is important to know the original habitat of the specimen, and care should be taken to note this when the collection is made. Though not insects, the Collembola, Protura, and Diplura are included for the sake of completeness. Orders marked with an asterisk are unlikely to be encountered in a general collection. Because of its novelty and size [three species, each known only from single specimens (Zompro et al., 2002)], the order Mantophasmatodea has not been included.
