List of insects and their scientific names.

There are over one million species of insects in the world. It would be impractical to give you a full list. Here is a good place to start:

To find a list of insects and their scientific names, you can refer to online resources such as scientific databases or entomology websites. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to find this information:

1. Start by visiting reputable scientific websites or databases that specialize in entomology, such as the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS), the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), or the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL).

2. On these websites, you can search for insects by entering specific names, such as "beetles," "flies," or "butterflies," or you can explore their taxonomic hierarchies starting from the order level (e.g., Coleoptera for beetles, Diptera for flies, and Lepidoptera for butterflies).

3. Once you have selected a specific insect order or group, you can access detailed information about individual species within that group. This information often includes the scientific names, common names, descriptions, and additional references for further exploration.

4. Additionally, some websites offer printable resources with lists of insects and their scientific names. For example, the website "Enchanted Learning" mentioned above provides printable worksheets and handouts that can assist in learning about insects and their scientific classification.

Remember that there are countless species of insects, so it may be challenging to find a comprehensive list. However, by using scientific resources and databases, you can access accurate and up-to-date information about specific insects and their scientific names.

Unfortunately, providing a complete list of insects and their scientific names would be very long and impractical. However, here is a list of some common insects with their scientific names:

1. Honeybee - Apis mellifera
2. Butterfly - Order: Lepidoptera
3. Ladybug - Coccinella septempunctata
4. Mosquito - Aedes aegypti
5. Dragonfly - Order: Odonata
6. Ant - Order: Hymenoptera
7. Grasshopper - Order: Orthoptera
8. Cockroach - Order: Blattodea
9. Beetle - Order: Coleoptera
10. Housefly - Musca domestica

Remember that this is just a small sample of the many different insects in the world.
