Part of our flatid plant hopper collection. This drawer contains a color standard and printed text that serves to provide information about the NCSU Insect Museum and also to prevent white space from interfering with the camera's ability to focus.

This panorama was done as part of a larger collection digitization effort at the North Carolina State University Insect Museum, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF DBI-0847924). The purpose of this image is to enable virtual browsing of our research collection. The snapshot feature of this website allows for annotations of these images, including: taxonomic determination of specimens, suggested corrections, questions, and loan requests.

    Hi disquipped, I posted a comment on your snapshot: gigapan.org/conversations/147239/I hope that answers your questions. The pain one I think is a challenge, but I can say that they do not feel nor interpret pain in the way that we think of pain.

    As per my snapshot today, please explain, in objective scientific but lay-understandable detail, whether insects can a) suffocate, and/or b) feel pain.
