Insect Study Requirements and Workbook
Here are the beetles we collected during the Insect Study merit badge instruction:
Collected via sweeping, beating and blacklighting at Lost Pines Boy Scout Reservation (Capitol Area Council), Bastrop County, Texas Oct. 19-20, 2012.
Some spp. were rather rare or at least rarely collected and photographed. Information on each sp. can be found here: http://bugguide.net/bgimage/user/4620
