Ants are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae and, along with the related wasps and bees, belong to the order Hymenoptera.
The Apocrita are a suborder of insects in the order Hymenoptera.
The arthropod leg is a form of jointed appendage of arthropods, usually used for walking.
Asynchronous muscles are muscles in which there is no one-to-one relationship between electrical stimulation and mechanical contraction.
The cephalothorax, also called prosoma in some groups, is a tagma of various arthropods, comprising the head and the thorax fused together, as distinct from the abdomen behind.
The cervix in insects is a membrane that separates the head from the thorax and is composed of structures from both of these.
True flies are insects of the order Diptera, the name being derived from the Greek δι- di- "two", and πτερόν pteron "wings".
The Heteroptera are a group of about 40,000 species of insects in the order Hemiptera.
Hymenoptera is a large order of insects, comprising the sawflies, wasps, bees, and ants.
Insects or Insecta (from Latin insectum) are hexapod invertebrates and the largest group within the arthropod phylum.
Insect wings are adult outgrowths of the insect exoskeleton that enable insects to fly.
The mesosoma is the middle part of the body, or tagma, of arthropods whose body is composed of three parts, the other two being the prosoma and the metasoma.
The mesothorax is the middle of the three segments in the thorax of an insect, and bears the second pair of legs.
The metathorax is the posterior of the three segments in the thorax of an insect, and bears the third pair of legs.
Mosquitoes are small, midge-like flies that constitute the family Culicidae.
Odonata is an order of carnivorous insects, encompassing the dragonflies (Anisoptera) and the damselflies (Zygoptera).
The pleuron (pl. pleura, from Greek side, rib) is a lateral sclerite of thoracic segment of an insect between the tergum and the sternum.
The propodeum or propodium is the first abdominal segment in Apocrita Hymenoptera (wasps, bees and ants).
The prothorax is the foremost of the three segments in the thorax of an insect, and bears the first pair of legs.
The scutellum is the posterior portion of either the mesonotum or the metanotum of an insect thorax; however, it is used almost exclusively in the former context, as the metanotum is rather reduced in most insect groups.
In biology a tagma (Greek: τάγμα, plural tagmata – τάγματα) is a specialized grouping of multiple segments or metameres into a coherently functional morphological unit.
