species scientists

Angel insects do not impact people or their activities.

HARD TO FIND

The order Zoraptera is one of the smallest and least known orders of insects. In fact, many entomologists (EHN-tih-MA-luh-jists), scientists who study insects, have never seen one alive. The order was originally created in 1913 for wingless individuals collected in West Africa. Since then scientists have discovered only 37 species of angel insects, including five fossil species. All of the known fossils are preserved in amber, or hardened tree sap.
