Re: Entomology B/C

I've actually seen Aeschnidae used a few times before, but I think it's a more rare version (I've seen "Aeschnidae" at a Chinese science museum though...). I feel like I will write "Aeshnidae" on tests out of habit.

Re: Entomology B/C

So what did you guys think of the Nats test? Honestly, I was quite disappointed. I was lucky enough to survive great regionals and state entomology tests with actual specimens, and I was hoping to get wrecked by the nationals test. I did forestry at nationals last year, so I was expecting pretty mu...
