What is the Oldest Insect Fossil?
The oldest identifiable insect fossil is a 390-million year old bristletail, a primitive wingless insect from the order Thysanura found in Quebec, Canada. The insect fossil is remarkably similar to modern-day silverfish. The first flights on earth were undoubtedly made by insects!

Did Butterflies Live During the Era of the Dinosaurs?
Fossils of butterflies are rare with the earliest butterfly fossils from the early Cretaceous period, about 130 million years ago. The development of the butterfly species is closely linked to the evolution of flowering plants (angiosperms) since both adult butterflies and caterpillars feed on flowering plants, and the adults are important pollinators to flowers.

What was the Biggest Insect Ever?
Fossils of a prehistoric dragonfly (Meganeura monyi) in the order Protodonata makes it the largest insect ever to be found with a full wingspan of 30 inches and a body length of 18 inches. The Meganeura dragonfly lived about 250 million years ago until it became extinct at the end of the Paleozoic Era.

What Type of Insect has Been on Earth the Longest?
The oldest group of insects on Earth are the cockroaches, particularly those in the Blattaria order, as this species dates back 300 million years.

What is the Largest Living Insect?
The largest living insects are Giant Walking Sticks from the (order Phasmida). This bug can grow to up to thirteen inches in length making it surely one of the longest insects in the world. The record holder for the longest insect goes to a specimen commonly found in Western Malaysia and Singapore called the West Malaysian Pharnacia Serratipes and it reaches an amazing length of twenty-two inches. There are approximately 3,000 tropical species of walking sticks, with only 10 species living in North America.

Although principally tropical and Asian in distribution, walking sticks are also found in the temperate regions of Europe and North America. One species, Megaphasma dentricus, is the longest insect in the United States, attaining 7 inches in length. The Malaysian Walking Leaf (Heteropteryx dilatata) is another very large insect to add to that list. Females of this species can be very large, up to 6.5 inches long which makes them half an inch short of being the longest insect. Framed walking stick insects are available in a variety of species for the discriminate insect collector.

What is the Largest Insect Egg?
The Malaysian stick insect (Heteropteryx dilitata) lays the largest insect egg with the egg measuring .05 inches.
