Entomology 462 orders of insects

Class Hexapoda

(the insects)

  • Three tagmata – head, thorax, abdomen

  • Thorax with three pairs of legs; normally two pairs of wings in adult stage

  • Head with one pair of antennae

  • Respiration by trachea

  • Terrestrial & fresh water inhabitants


Entomology 462 orders of insects

Class Hexapoda

(all have one pair of antennae, a head, thorax & abdominal regions, three pair of legs, adults usually have wings, use trachea)

Life Cycle Groups

  • Simple Metamorphosis (=incomplete) - egg, nymph, adult stages

  • Complete Metamorphosis - egg, larva, pupa, adult stages
