In the 10th edition of Systema Naturae, Carl Linnaeus classified the arthropods, including insects, arachnids and crustaceans, among his class "Insecta". Insects with net-veined wings were brought together under the name Neuroptera.

[Note 1]

The Beautiful Demoiselle was named Libellula virgo in 1758.
The Black-tailed Skimmer was named Libellula cancellata in 1758.

Ephemera (mayflies)[edit]

The mayfly Ephemera vulgata was named in 1758.

Phryganea (caddisflies)[edit]
