Words by William Whitaker
Designed to help Latin students, this online dictionary is a good starting place for getting an idea as to what those scientific names mean in English.

Invertebrates of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Arizona
Looks like a very extensive checklist.

Colorado Plateau Museum of Arthropod Biodiversity --Northern Arizona University
Has some on-line databases of Arizona arthropods in a museum collection, useful as preliminary checklists.

University of California Riverside -- Entomology Museum
Good FAQs on Southern California insects and spiders, including info on brown recluse and africanized honeybee occurence in California, and general info on other Southern California bugs people often ask about.

Entomology--Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
Has pages on Insects of the Los Angeles Basin (a small image gallery), Common Spiders of Los Angeles basin (including image gallery).

Electronic Biologia Centrali-Americana
Digital version of (part of) an important historical work on Central-American biodiversity. Many plates of insects. Takes some hunting to find the plates, but can be downloaded as pdf's and they are beautiful. The original work is from the end of the 19th century, and is in the public domain, but the Smithsonian is asserting copyright to the digital version--they allow educational and personal use.

Oklahoma Wild Things
Lots of excellent photographs by Charles S. Lewallen. Has good identifications of many common or notable Oklahoma insects, including less well-known groups (heteroptera, hymenoptera, diptera). Takes some digging to find images.

Table of contents pages are alphabetical by common name. (Listing by families is not complete.) See the list of alphabetical TOC pages, which includes beetles, lepidoptera, other insects, and spiders. (There are pages on vertebrates too.) The contents pages just list the common name, but the full Latin name is usually listed with the photo.
