Species similar to or like Insect

Insects or Insecta (from Latin insectum) are pancrustacean hexapod invertebrates and the largest group within the arthropod phylum. Wikipedia

  • Beetle

    Beetles are a group of insects that form the order Coleoptera, in the superorder Endopterygota. Their front pair of wings are hardened into wing-cases, elytra, distinguishing them from most other insects. Wikipedia

  • Lepidoptera

    Order of insects that includes butterflies and moths (both are called lepidopterans). About 180,000 species of the Lepidoptera are described, in 126 families and 46 superfamilies, 10 percent of the total described species of living organisms. Wikipedia

  • Arthropod

    An arthropod (, (gen. Invertebrate animal having an exoskeleton, a segmented body, and paired jointed appendages. Wikipedia

  • Hemiptera

    Order of insects comprising some 50,000 to 80,000 species of groups such as the cicadas, aphids, planthoppers, leafhoppers, bed bugs and shield bugs. They range in size from 1 mm to around 15 cm, and share a common arrangement of sucking mouthparts. Wikipedia

  • Spider

    Spiders (order Araneae) are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs, chelicerae with fangs generally able to inject venom, and spinnerets that extrude silk. They are the largest order of arachnids and rank seventh in total species diversity among all orders of organisms. Wikipedia

  • Ant

    Ants are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae and, along with the related wasps and bees, belong to the order Hymenoptera. Earlier origin. Wikipedia

  • Mollusca

    Second-largest phylum of invertebrate animals after the Arthropoda. The members are known as molluscs or mollusks. Wikipedia

  • Aphid

    Aphids are small sap-sucking insects and members of the superfamily Aphidoidea. Common names include greenfly and blackfly, although individuals within a species can vary widely in color. Wikipedia

  • Flea

    Flea, the common name for the order Siphonaptera, includes 2,500 species of small flightless insects that survive as external parasites of mammals and birds. Fleas live by consuming blood, or hematophagy, from their hosts. Wikipedia

  • Marine invertebrates

    Marine invertebrates are the invertebrates that live in marine habitats. Blanket term that includes all animals apart from the vertebrate members of the chordate phylum. Wikipedia

  • Cockroach

    Cockroaches (or roaches ) are insects of the order Blattodea, which also includes termites. About 30 cockroach species out of 4,600 are associated with human habitats. Wikipedia

  • Entomophagy

    Entomophagy (, from Greek ἔντομον éntomon, 'insect', and φαγεῖν phagein, 'to eat') describes a feeding behaviour that includes insects. Aside from non-human creatures, the term can also refer to the practice of eating insects among humans. Wikipedia

  • Trilobite

    Trilobites ( meaning "three lobes") are a group of extinct marine artiopodan arthropods that form the class Trilobita. Trilobites form one of the earliest-known groups of arthropods. Wikipedia

  • Arachnid

    Class of joint-legged invertebrate animals , in the subphylum Chelicerata. Arachnida includes orders containing spiders (the largest order), scorpions, ticks, mites, harvestmen, and solifuges. Wikipedia

  • Chelicerata

    The subphylum Chelicerata (New Latin, from French chélicère, from Greek χηλή, khēlē "claw, chela" and κέρας, kéras "horn") constitutes one of the major subdivisions of the phylum Arthropoda. It contains the sea spiders, arachnids (including scorpions, spiders, and potentially horseshoe crabs ), and several extinct lineages, such as the eurypterids and chasmataspidids. Wikipedia

  • Springtail

    Springtails (Collembola) form the largest of the three lineages of modern hexapods that are no longer considered insects (the other two are the Protura and Diplura). Although the three orders are sometimes grouped together in a class called Entognatha because they have internal mouthparts, they do not appear to be any more closely related to one another than they are to all insects, which have external mouthparts. Wikipedia

  • Butterfly

    Butterflies are insects in the macrolepidopteran clade Rhopalocera from the order Lepidoptera, which also includes moths. Adult butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. Wikipedia

  • Odonata

    Order of flying insects that includes the dragonflies and damselflies. Like most other flying insects (flies, beetles, Lepidoptera and Hymenoptera), they evolved in the early Mesozoic era. Wikipedia

  • Wasp

    Any insect of the narrow-waisted suborder Apocrita of the order Hymenoptera which is neither a bee nor an ant; this excludes the broad-waisted sawflies , which look somewhat like wasps but are in a separate suborder. Shared by bees and ants. Wikipedia

  • Cricket (insect)

    Crickets are Orthopteran insects which are related to bush crickets, and, more distantly, to grasshoppers. In older literature, such as Imms, "crickets" were placed at the family level (i.e. Gryllidae), but contemporary authorities including Otte now place them in the superfamily Grylloidea. Wikipedia

  • Fly

    Flies are insects of the order Diptera, the name being derived from the Greek δι- di- "two", and πτερόν pteron "wing". Insects of this order use only a single pair of wings to fly, the hindwings having evolved into advanced mechanosensory organs known as halteres, which act as high-speed sensors of rotational movement and allow dipterans to perform advanced aerobatics. Wikipedia

  • Annelid

    The annelids (Annelida, from Latin anellus, "little ring" ), also known as the ringed worms or segmented worms, are a large phylum, with over 22,000 extant species including ragworms, earthworms, and leeches. The species exist in and have adapted to various ecologies – some in marine environments as distinct as tidal zones and hydrothermal vents, others in fresh water, and yet others in moist terrestrial environments. Wikipedia

  • Termite

    Termites are eusocial insects that are classified at the taxonomic rank of infraorder Isoptera, or as epifamily Termitoidae within the order Blattodea (along with cockroaches). Termites were once classified in a separate order from cockroaches, but recent phylogenetic studies indicate that they evolved from cockroaches, as they are the sister group to wood eating cockroaches of the genus Cryptocercus. Wikipedia

  • Honey bee

    Eusocial flying insect within the genus Apis of the bee clade, all native to Eurasia. They are known for their construction of perennial colonial nests from wax, the large size of their colonies, and surplus production and storage of honey, distinguishing their hives as a prized foraging target of many animals, including honey badgers, bears and human hunter-gatherers. Wikipedia

  • Bryozoa

    Bryozoa (also known as the Polyzoa, Ectoprocta or commonly as moss animals) are a phylum of aquatic invertebrate animals, nearly all forming sedentary colonies. Typically about 0.5 mm long, they are filter feeders that sieve food particles out of the water using a retractable lophophore, a "crown" of tentacles lined with cilia. Wikipedia

  • Insecta in the 10th edition of Systema Naturae

    In the 10th edition of Systema Naturae, Carl Linnaeus classified the arthropods, including insects, arachnids and crustaceans, among his class "Insecta". He described the Insecta as: Wikipedia

  • Crustacean

    Crustaceans (Crustacea ) form a large, diverse arthropod taxon which includes such animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimps, prawns, krill, woodlice, and barnacles. Now well accepted that the crustacean group is paraphyletic, and comprises all animals in the clade Pancrustacea other than hexapods. Wikipedia

  • Silverfish

    Species of small, primitive, wingless insect in the order Zygentoma (formerly Thysanura). Its common name derives from the animal's silvery light grey colour, combined with the fish-like appearance of its movements. Wikipedia

  • Dragonfly

    Insect belonging to the order Odonata, infraorder Anisoptera . Elongated body. Wikipedia

  • Fungus

    Any member of the group of eukaryotic organisms that includes microorganisms such as yeasts and molds, as well as the more familiar mushrooms. Separate from the other eukaryotic life kingdoms of plants and animals. Wikipedia
