CLASSIFICATION OF MECOPTERA
As of 2010
Families in Green color Mecoptera Details
Boreidae (snow scorpionflies)
Panorpidae (common scorpionflies)
Panorpodidae (short-faced scorpionflies)
Note: DNA evidence shows a close affinity
of members of this group with the
Siphonaptera, and they may be grouped
with that order at a later date.
Examples of beneficial species occur in almost every insect order, and considerable information on morphology and habits has been assembled. Therefore, the principal groups of insect parasitoids and predators provide details that refer to the entire class Insecta. These details are available at <taxnames.htm>.
