CU Museum of Natural History entomology databases & research tools
[cite:472187]
CU = University of Colorado at Boulder
Insects species list includes names only; there are separate databases for Orthoptera and bees

NCSU insect collection species inventory database
[cite:368979]
the resource seems to be unavailable as of Nov 2016

a helpful source, esp. to check NC state records; used to cover >21,000 species, but (i) the taxonomy was quite outdated in many cases, and (ii) the source was not a complete checklist of NC fauna, either, as it did not cover data from other institutional or private holdings

Bright E. (2002-2011) Aquatic Insects of Michigan
[cite:368945]
A helpful source, with keys to species of most groups, checklists, and other info

American Entomology
Say, Thomas. (1859). American entomology : a description of the insects of North America, with illustrations drawn and colored after nature (edited by John L. LeConte; with a memoir of the author by George Ord). Boston: Estes & Lauriat, 2 volumes.

A lovely historical work. High resolution scans of individual plates (at the end of each volume) can be downloaded JPEG files. (Formerly they were JPEG2000.) Many of the plates are lovely, and it is fascinating to see the first illustrations and descriptions of many of our common species. Thomas Say was a pioneer of entomology in the United States.
