last page - Mantid Species in North America
Lists 21 species of mantids that occur in NA. Notably, they provide common names for most of them. They also list species for select states.

Florida Preying Mantids - Insecta - Mantodea
A PDF file that lists 12 mantid species that may occur in Florida, providing a key for identifying them. Arnett (1) says there are 20 species in the US and Canada, so that's a good portion of them probably found in Florida.

Checklist of the Collembola
A currently under-construction web site (as of 2/2008) with numerous checklists, keys and other information on the Collembola of the world.

Termite Pictures & Information
Termite site dedicated to answering all of your termite questions

There is a push for all images in scientific publications to be deposited in a digital format and available to the public. Most of the contributions are from entomologists, but the scope of morphbank is to include all images of any living (or once living) organism. I am not directly associated with this project, but I think it has some really good aims.

North Carolina State University General Entomology (ENT 425)
Excellent site with systematics, descriptions, images. Looks to be a fairly complete on-line entomology class. Try the Course Tutorial for an introduction to insect biology and Compendium of Hexapod Classes and Orders for systematics. Spot ID of Orders page has photos of representatives of major orders--well done. The design of the site is simple and uncluttered--excellent work.

All it needs is links to BugGuide on appropriate pages!

Historical literature
"Core Historical Literature of Agriculture" from Cornell University. Has full text of Annals of the Entomological Society of America from 1908-1950, and Transactions of the American Entomological Society from 1867-1950. - Digital Photography by Keith Turrill - Insect Gallery
