Identification Resources-Ongoing

(The current plan is that this is going to be an ever-evolving post where I dump new identification resources.
Maybe I'll break up posts by Kingdom--let's see how unwieldy this gets!)

Identification resources:

Butterfly eggs
Moth eggs
Hemiptera eggs
Things mistaken for insect eggs:
ScaleNet-ID insect scales
Particularly useful is the "Ecological Associates" tab at the top where you can look up lists of scale species by host plants
Currently I look up host plant, then plug the scale genus into iNat for photos. Many species do not have photos on iNaturalist or even when searching the internet.

Moths and butterflies in North America:
Miller, Jeffrey C.; Hammond, Paul C. 2003. Lepidoptera of the Pacific Northwest: caterpillars and adults. FHTET-2003-03. Morgantown, VW: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Health Technology Enterprise Team. 324 p. (Online only)
Can look up photos by state. Useful to have a genus to start with.

Horticultural plant arthropods-some photos
(see long list on side of individual entry)

Kingdom Plants:

Common Mosses of Western Oregon and Washington by Bruce McCune and Martin Hutten (Book):

Mosses, liverworts, hornworts, lichens, lichenicolous fungi:
Rambryum's journal posts with excellent resources for identifying Mosses, Liverworts, Hornworts, Lichens, and Lichenicolous Fungi:

Book: Macrolichens of the Pacific Northwest by Bruce McCune and Linda Geiser
Overview of lichen forms Wikipedia (online):
The Lichens of British Columbia: Illustrated Keys by Goward, McCune, Meidinger (online):
