EL PASO BUGS

This is by no means a comprehensive list of arthropod species in El Paso County. It is simply a gallery of some of the insects and related invertebrate species in this beautiful corner of Texas. Most photos were taken in El Paso County with the exception of some species that have been documented as occurring in El Paso and illustrated with images taken elsewhere. Our intention is to give the general public an increased awareness and appreciation of some of the fascinating arthropod species with which we share this land. Invertebrates depicted here most likely occur in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico as well. Enjoy!

Note: Whenever possible the links to the pictures are named in the following sequence: Order-Family-Genus-Species-Common name. We have made every effort to provide accurate species identification and have received the help of many entomologists curating this image collection. However, we do not discard the possibility of a misidentification. Special gratitude to the Editors and volunteers of http://bugguide.net/ for their kind assistance.  No additional information on biology, economic importance, and management is provided because the organism name will allow the reader to access vast amount of data readily available online and from other reference material. We accept contributions of high-quality El Paso insect photos. Of course, proper credit will be given. Email: el-paso-tx@tamu.edu

FOSSILIZED INSECTS

Insects in this section are not exactly “El Paso Bugs” as they were excavated from a quarry in Florissant (Teller County, Colorado), but they are too interesting not to share. Besides, Florissant and El Paso are geographically separated only by 481 miles; thus, it is not a far-fetched idea to think that these very same species were present in the El Paso region back then.
Mr. Joseph Cancellare kindly allowed me to photograph his large collection of insect fossils. We only had time to shoot a small part of his collection; which, in his words, “consists of 2,400 catalogued plants, insects, and fish fossils.” For more information about his collection and fossil location go to:
Fossils from the Florissant Formation.

Estimated age of these insect fossils is 34.07 +/- 0.10 million years old.
