Search for a Bug

Below is a user-friendly, interactive, searchable table to assist you in locating bugs, insects and spiders that can be found in the San Gabriel Foothills, Angeles National Forest, San Bernardino National Forest, Orange County, Inland Empire and other locations.

Useful Tips for using the Bug Finder Table

The bugs are initially sorted by Bug Name, in alphabetical order. You can also sort by Color, Bug Family/SubFamily or Bug Order/SubOrder, if you wish, by clicking on the column headings.

You can use this table as a search tool to:

  • Find a bug by Name.
  • Filter bugs by Color (refers to the more dominant color you will most likely see in the field).
  • Filter bugs by Family or Order.
  • Search bug data using any combination of boxes and column headings. See "How To Use Table" for additional help.

This table has only a few entries now but many more will be added in time. This table will become much more useful as the table becomes more propagated.

For more extensive help on using the table as a search tool, visit the "Sightings and Observations" page.
