Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS)
A searchable taxonomic database for all living things. I just discovered this tonight but I can see it will be extremely useful.

For one thing, I can search for a genus and quickly see where it fits into the taxonomic hierarchy. This will make finding things in Arnett (1) simpler. They also provide common names for most taxa. Another use would be to get a quick check for how many species there might be for a particular genus.

There does appear to be huge omissions. For example, I couldn't find Salticidae (jumping spiders) in there.

Digital Arthropods
A digital field guide to the Phylum Arthropoda. Last updated 2001, but looks fairly extensive. Searchable database with photos and life histories.

The Duke Natural History Society
I just found out about this group when they linked to BugGuide.Net from their online resources page. It sounds like a great opportunity for those in the Durham, NC area. Their online resources page also has many useful links for those of us in the Southeastern US. I plan to mine it and duplicate the useful links on this site.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park Checklists
Checklists for that park on a variety of organisms. Several lists of invertebrates, including Arachnids, some beetle families. Some checklists incomplete as of this writing (March, 2004).

Common Names of Insects & Related Organisms
Amercian Entomological Society has, apparently, their whole list of common names on-line. You can search the Common Names Database, or download a PDF document with Phylum, Class, Order, and Family names. There are about 2,100 names in the database as of March, 2004. There is an on-line procedure for proposing new common names. (Link corrected 4/23/2006.)

Doing a few tests, I found that the database does not include many common names in widespread use by North American insect watchers. For instance, there are only three common names listed for Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies). There are only seven common names listed for members of the brushfoot butterfly family (Nymphalidae).

CalPhotos: Animals
Thousands of photos of animals, including many insects and other invertebrates.
