Note, these species have no legal protection.

Most of Texas' beetle SGCN can be seen here

USDA PLANTS Database
[cite:1124720 ]

The PLANTS Database provides standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories.

It includes names, plant symbols, checklists, distributional data, species abstracts, characteristics, images, crop information, automated tools, onward Web links, and references.

This information primarily promotes land conservation in the United States and its territories, but academic, educational, and general use is encouraged.

PLANTS is a collaborative effort of the USDA NRCS National Plant Data Team (NPDT), the USDA NRCS Information Technology Center (ITC), The USDA National Information Technology Center (NITC), and many other partners.

University of Texas Insect Collection (UTIC)
[cite:1045401 ]

The University of Texas at Austin's insect collection has, and/or continues to be, variously referred to as:

Brackenridge Field Laboratory (BFL) Insect Collection
Entomology Collection at BFL
Texas Natural History Collections (TNHC)
University of Texas Biodiversity Collections (UTBC)
University of Texas Entomology Collection (UTEC)
University of Texas Insect Collection (UTIC) - this is the most commonly used name.

When I hear that the collection has an official name, I'll update this page. I will include a link to this page for everything I shoot from UT's collection starting in March 2015.
