There is more to it than that. By the end of this unit you should be able to tell someone without hesitation the difference between these two insects as well as many others.As you progress through the unit, you will refer to the textbook for information to fill in your study guide table. The textbook has a appendix dedicated to describing the insect orders, but more detailed descriptions are scattered in textboxes throughout chapters 7-14. honey beesscarab beetle5You should recall from previous units how organisms are organized. An organism is first classified into a Kingdom (such as Animalia, Plantae, Fungi, etc), then Phylum, Class, Order, Family and lastly Genus and species. You have already learned that Insects are in the kingdom Animalia and the phylum Arthropoda along with lobsters, spiders and crabs. You also know that insects are in a separate class called Insecta.The class Insecta is then broken down into 30 insect orders and these orders are then separated into families.For example, a scarab beetle is in the class Insecta, the order Coleoptera and the family Scarabaeidae.A bee is in the class Insecta, the order Hymenoptera, and the family Apidae.This lineage is diagramed on the next slide.Classification Review6Classification Review Diagram
