I'm getting a rules clarification about this. It seems kind of weird that we might have to learn incorrect facts from a 30 year old book...

I know, some of the stuff is outdated. For example, Grylloblattodea is no longer an order, it's now a suborder in the order Notoptera. But the Audobon doesn't have that, and so the rules go with the Audobon.

Just stick with what the Audobon says.

It's more important to stick with the book than be defiant.

In terms of sheets of paper, each team may bring one 8.5" x 11" two-sided page of information in any form from any source.

For the larvae on Odonata, do need to know the larvae for each individual family or just what the larvae of dragonflies generally look like?

Ha, that was my earlier question.
I'm going to assume that we'll need to know the difference between damselflies and dragonflies, at least, on the regional level. Maybe not even that.

I read in the Audubon Field Guide that Bombyliidae have longer legs than Apidae...I guess you'll have to look real closely.

Well, they do look pretty different. The wings on the latter are longer, and some of the latter have long probosci.
