|Ladybirds (ladybugs, lady beetles)|
|Ladybirds (Coccinellidae) are a diverse family within the order Beetles.
The body of the ladybird is dome-shaped, shortened or oval. They are between 1 to 12 mm in length. The head, chest and underside are usually black however some have a light brown to red-brown underside. The coloring of the head depends on the rest of the body and is sometimes different to the coloring of the body. The body color ranges from light beige to yellow, orange, all the brown tones, pink, red to black. Young ladybirds are initially white or yellowish. The coloring...|
|The head and chest form one unit (Prosoma). This is followed by the abdomen which is usually significantly bigger. Araneae are Chelicerata. At the end of the head are retractable claws, containing glands which secrete poison. They do not use theit mouthparts (at the male as genitals) for chewing their food. Four pairs of legs are attached to the prosoma and each leg comprises six to seven segments, which in ...|
|Adult Anthocoris nemorum reach body lengths of 3. 5 - 4. 5 mm. The common flower bug is oval in shape and dark in colour. The third and fourth segment of the antenna, the head and pronotum outshine in length, are built spiral. The head and pronotum are black. The hind legs have a dark ring on the outside of the thighs.

|The head of the bee wolf is big and visibly wider than the front section of the body. The antennae are short and thicker in the middle and point forward during flight. An important characteristic of these insects is the whitish-yellow marking on the forehead, which sometimes resembles a twice or trice jagged crown. The crown-like marking differs on each bee wolf. The males have large mandibles on the head to mark out territory and attract females in the mating season. |
The Taurus fly can be found throughout southern Europe, but is rare. It is medium-sized, compact and almost spherical in shape. It is mostly yellow in colour and has black spots and ligatures. It is covered in fine hairs.
The head is spherical and black and the antennae are very small and thin. The third segment of the antenna is very short and with apically thin hair. The proboscis is strikingly large, yellow in colour and appears slightly darker at the end. In the restin...|
...he legs. The proboscis is stretched out before eating takes place. The chest (thorax) is very rounded, yellow on the sides has a big, black shiny patch on the upper side. This patch is joined to broad longitudinal stripe which extends to the head. At the thorax’s sides there are large scales under which the halteres are covered. The abdomen is yellow and with black spots on the top as also with three black bandages , which to the rear end are wedge-shaped and extended. The legs are long , ...
|Thick-headed flies reach body lengths of 3-18 mm. Their bodies are different in shape and colour. A common and conspicuous feature is the large, bloated-looking head. There is often a translucent bubble on the forehead. Their probosces are short and strong. The sensors (antennae) can be short or long with two or three segments depending on the species and are attached to a ‘hump’ on the head. Thick-headed flies have long, thin, transparent wings, which can be purple, red to yellow or brownish in colour. The chest plate (pronotum) often has a marking made up of dark spots and a silver-coloured pattern. The abdomen of the flies varies in form and a...|

Their breathing holes are very small and have a brownish periphery. The head is light brown. The head’s capsule has brown and black spots.|
|...agiognathus arbustorum reach lengths of 3.7 - 4.3 mm, while males range from 3.8 - 4.6 mm. Their bodies are elongated and the males are slenderer than the females.
