If you wish to have an animal identified and live in the United States or Canada, your best bet is probably http://www.BugGuide.net.  We are no longer doing identifications.

Re use of images sent to us:  we are especially interested in displaying high-quality images of members of species not already represented by this site, or images that show unusual animal behavior or characteristics.  We might be able to help you identify an image from an image, but we make no guarantees.  Please keep copies of images you send to us.  We cannot accept responsibility for being the sole storage site of these pictures.

Contribute to our forum.  You can add to our existing discussion threads or suggest another.  Or you may add comments or questions.

There might be answers to your questions on the Resources page.   I frequently refer to these sources of information and some organizations represented might be able to help with practical problems.
