It is estimated there are approximately 200,000 species of insects in Australia, and these are placed in about 640 families. Because of the vast number of species finding documentation to identify a particular species is difficult. These pages on insects show just a few of the insects captured on camera within our district. There are several website available re Australian Insects. The CSIRO website http://www.ento.csiro.au/education/key/couplet_01.html is a good starting place to learn about insects.
