    This is an entire key to common invertebrate insect families of the upper US midwest, available for download. The illustrations and anatomy diagrams are very clear. This would be most useful for older students or teacher training, since some of the terminology is a bit advanced.

    Make sure you also see the visual aquatic insect key available at, one of our recommended resources.
