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21,000 species, but (i) the taxonomy was quite outdated in many cases, and (ii) the source was not a complete checklist of NC fauna, either, as it did not cover data from other institutional or private holdings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

Billd's Florida Insect Page.
This is my entomology page with photos and links about insects. I hope you use this page for science and education.

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.

MCZ Type Database @ Harvard Entomology
A Mantis powered search engine of Harvard Entomology's insect images. It currently has over 16,000 images.

Jardine's Dictionary of Entomology
Digital version of A Dictionary of Entomology by N. K. Jardine (1914). Available as individual html documents (by letter), a text-based PDF, and a facsimile (scanned) PDF. It is extensive--I found some terms in there I had puzzled over for some time.

California Insect Survey Publications
A series of monographs about insect groups as they exist in California (in PDF format). Many useful keys and descriptions, though most are over the head of the non-entomologically-trained. Even so, amateurs will find useful information even if they can't make full use of the articles.
