Beetle species are many and varied and they soon began to dominate our Other Insects page so I’ve split them out. Besides, I’m becoming more enamoured of beetles, so they deserve a page of their own.

Ladybirds are beetles and probably most peoples favourites so I’ve dedicated a separate page to them.

Here, I’ve split out the Longhorn Beetles into a separate table but the rest, Leaf Beetles/Ground Beetles etc, are lumped together and begin my collection. I originally tried to shadow the order of species used in a book but, with the addition of foreign species, that stopped working. I also had a harder time finding anything so I’ve settled on alphabetical order of binomial name.
