Thanks!
[attachment=0]Bug PIc for Scioly.jpg[/attachment] So here are the questions.. Order, Family, Common Family Name, How to tell Male apart from Female(if you use the word ovipositor you are going to be wrong) and what are its front legs adapted for?
Hemiptera, Belostomatidae, Giant water bug, males carry eggs on their backs, and the front legs are raptorial
Nice job!!! Your turn

Isoptera (no family), termite, and I think that one's a soldier.

Coleoptera, Gyrinidae, whirlgig beetles. Their eyes are divided to let them see both above and below water as they float/swim on the surface. They swim rapidly in circles when agitated and trap an air bubble beneath their elytra to help swim underwater for long periods of time.

Correct! I was also looking for the fact that they secrete gyrinidal, a foul-smelling substance that deters predators and also acts as a chemical alarm system to other whirligigs in the area.

That is Drosphilidae/Pomace Flies in the order of Diptera and they are famous for infesting fruits with their larvae?

I guess that's technically correct, but I was looking for
The genus [i]Drosophilia[/i] in Drosophilidae is commonly used as an experiment/model for labs in genetics, developmental biology, etc. because it has such a short generation time and easy to produce out of the wild.
Go ahead and post the next one!
