American Insects, Orders Megaloptera, Neuroptera, and Trichoptera



I want to thank Roger Blahnik, David Burton, Peter Duelli, Eric Eaton, Ranulfo Gonzalez-Obando, Charles S. Henry, Ralph Holzenthal, Michael Ohl, John D. Oswald, Norman Penny, Julio Rivera, Roger Rohrbeck, Gilberto Soares Albuquerque, and Catherine Ann Tauber, for helping me with identifications of many of the photos of these two Orders. Other members of the website have helped too, and many of these friends are listed on the overall acknowledgments page for the American Insects website.

In developing the species pages I have relied on a great many scholarly articles old and new, and these are listed in the Works Consulted page for Megaloptera and Neuroptera.
