I'm not sure where excretory would fall in those categories, but you should know it...just a general question, where are the "ears" of insects? This was on my test and I wasn't sure because I know grasshoppers have them on their legs, but it asked about all insects...and it asked for a specific name, which I wasn't sure of? We ended up putting the antenna on the head because we didn't know.
Okay thanks :D I just added excretory... I am now trying to find others.
I would've just write that they have them on the legs??
The hearing organs are called "tympanum"

Oh thanks!! And yeah, circulatory is a must!

Anyone have a sure-fire way of telling halictidae apart from colletidae, (other than halictidae commonly being metallic).

I'd imagine that the tabs have to be visible. They're most likely assuming that the tabs would be used for navigation, and if you did not make the tabs visible it would seem as if you were trying to add in extra information.

And yeah, they definitely have a three word maximum.

How are you guys maximizing your guides?
I am using Audubon, and I have highlighted info about the families and orders.
Any other suggestions?

I've only seen and read the Audubon and NWF, and I think it's pretty funny how we're allowed to annotate it, with no limit for annotations, and there's a lot of space in the margins or after paragraphs. Especially in the Audubon. I would suggest writing in extra notes in all that space. Don't crowd it too much, but I think the annotations is a rule we should definitely take advantage of.

Absolutely. Anything you have trouble with, write it down somewhere.

I am wondering the likelihood of the use of specimens as opposed to images at Nationals. Even though our Regional (IMSA) used specimens, the state test had images. What about your states?
Thanks :P

Pretty likely. I have gotten specimens at both states and invites. Probably a mix of both.

There is a spelling mistake on the lists. They spell common sawflies tenthedinidae, not tenthredinidae- with a "r".
Has there been a rule clarification on this? Is it too late to file one for nationals? :?
