I think that List of U.S. state butterflies should be merged into this list. There's already considerable overlap and doubling of entries. Then you run into the confusing cases like Alabama that has a butterfly for a state insect and another butterfly for its state butterfly; it's easier to keep them both in one list, in my opinion. —Elipongo (Talk|contribs) 09:48, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Oppose The one list is for insects the other for butterlies. Insects means it is the class Insecta, butterflies are in the order of Lepidoptera. Meaning that all butterflies are insecta, but not all insecta are butterlies. 8-))) --Hedwig in Washington(TALK) 01:01, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
Hey, can someone more knowledgeable than me check this list for errors? It seems that three different states' (at least) state insect is the ladybug. Is that a typo, or just a weird fluke of the states? Clevomon 9:20 EST, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
Pennsylvania has only one official insect, the firefly that is noted. The entry for the 7 spotted ladybug is incorrect.
