Entomology in Photography - XplorMor International

Please know we are not a team of formerly trained entomologists, instead we rely heavily on various university entomology department sites, iNaturalist, and other online resources for collecting our identification information. We strive to keep up with correct identifications but approval and verification must be done prior to publication.

We strive to keep up with correct identifications but approval and verification must be done prior to publication.
