There are several websites available that provide detailed entomological information for people wishing to learn to identify common insects. Even those who are not experts can learn to identify the names of insects that they notice in their day-to-day travels.
The Insect Dichotomous Key, available at InsectIdentification.org, assists users to identify insects. The identification key, located on the left side of the screen, lists different types of common insects, such as beetles, dragonflies, butterflies, and spiders. From there, users can view an extensive database with photographs of each subspecies. Users can also input specific characteristics of an insect to see photos of insects that are possible matches.
