ABSTRACT
This article presents a glossary related to insects, published in the January 1992 issue of the periodical "Monkeyshines Goes Buggy (The Study of Entomology)." Arthropods are animals lacking a backbone and having jointed legs and a segmented body, such as insects, spiders, and lobsters. The term Batesian mimicry is used to describe the resemblance of some harmless insects to other distasteful or toxic species; the imitation serves to deter predators. Caterpillar is the common name for those immature insects that are long and worm-like with six legs and ten prolegs, and which grow to be butterflies or moths; a type of larva.
