Common Names of Insects Database
The ESA Common Names database is an essential reference for anyone who works with insects. It includes more than 2,000 common names and is searchable by common name, scientific name, author, order, family, genus, and species.
Interested individuals may propose new common names by submitting the Common Names Proposal Form that is reviewed by the Committee on the Common Names of Insects and voted on by the ESA Governing Board. Detailed information on the submission and approval process is available through the links in the sidebar to the right.Our understanding of taxonomy evolves over time, and although the Committee on the Common Names of Insects does work to update the taxonomic information included in the ESA Common Names database, sometimes the committee is not aware of recent changes. If you see outdated taxonomic information in the ESA Common Names list, you can help by notifying the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This juried symposium is open to submissions from ESA, ESC, and ESBC Student Transition and Early Career/Early Professional members. Four presenters will be selected, one representing each ESA Section, to give a 30-minute feature presentation describing their research programs in this special symposium.

This symposium will feature a selection of graduate students near the end of their masters or doctoral programs to showcase their research with greater depth than the standard 10-minute student competition allows. The symposium will feature a total of eight speakers, four from ESA and four from ESC.
Additional information will be required, including an abstract, 1-page outline of research to be presented, CV, two-minute promotional video, and a letter of support. Submissions not selected will be scheduled as part of the student competition 10-minute paper sessions. Learn more.
