a couple of years ago, a nice fellow posted on here that he had a set of bug identification pages that anyone was welcome to download and use.
i did.
i printed out a complete set on waterproof paper, put them in a binder, and when the Casting for Recovery ladies went on our "Bug Walk" to learn a little bit of aquatic entomology, this book was a great resource. the ladies would bring their little pans and buckets to the table and figure out what they had. the waterproof paper meant that drips didn't matter.
does anyone remember this? can anyone point me to the thread? i'd like to say thank you again.

Casey,

Here are a few links you might like;

http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20p?see=I_DSC/0000

http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20p?see=I_DSC/0001

http://www.discoverlife.org/20/q?search=Insecta

The first two links seem to only have pictures of the nymphal stage of aquatic insects. I didn't see any winged adults but I didn't really explore the web site very thoroughly either.
