A Guide to BugGuide, Guest post by Robert Lord Zimlich

Robert Lord Zimlich is a Contributing Editor for BugGuide.net.

If you have images of insects and spiders that you would like identified, BugGuide.net, is the premier identification website in North America. The interactive nature and easy submitting process, continue to be major factors in its success. Unlike similar websites, a contributor need only register, and start posting images for ID request. While hosted by Iowa State University’s entomology department, Ids and placements are made by more than 200 veteran editors, assisted by expert specialists from universities from around the world.

BugGuide’s large database of more than 1 million images, is easily accessible. You are always only a few clicks from, say, finding what species of moths have been submitted from your state.
