They are insects that have incomplete metamorphosis.
The larvae are aquatic, their oral appendages are well developed and have plant feeding.
ephemeral. insect. arthropod. invertebrate. 1
In this state they can live for several years, but when they reach the adult state they become winged insects, without an oral device, and they usually live for a short time (even a few hours), only the one necessary for its reproduction.

After spending their entire lives hidden, for us, suddenly for a day or two they appear to hundreds or thousands, and at night they are seen to flutter and gather around the lights and then they are nothing more than a trail of wings transparent that are swept by the wind.
A small presentation of the diversity of the insects could be the following:
|WITHOUT WINGS or Apteros|
|Proturos||They are the most primitive insects.|
Without wings or antennae.
A ventral organ allows them to take great leaps.
|Tisanuros||Tres apendices terminales|
Lepisma or silverfish
|Dipluros||Two terminal appendices.|
Two pairs of wings.
Aquatic larvae with gills.
Two pairs of large membranous wings.
|Mantoids or mantids||Incomplete metamorphosis|
Tongue at the end of the abdomen.
Two pairs of wings, of which the first protects the second.
Social organization similar to that of ants.
Termes or Termites
|Hemiptera||Superorder that includes heteropteros and homopteros.|
Two pairs of wings, the first one in its anterior part.
Two pairs of equal wings, which sometimes are missing.
|Hymenoptera||Mouthpieces chewing or sucking.|
Four membranous wings.
Bee, Wasp, Ant
Places of birds and mammals.
Lice of chickens.
Four membranous wings with numerous nerviations.
|Coleoptera||Chewing mouth pieces.|
Two pairs of wings, the first very coro form a protective case.
|Lepidoptera||Mouthpieces transformed into suctor apparatus that is spirally wound.|
Two pairs of membranous wings covered with scales.
Butterflies and moths.
|Diptera||Biting and sucking mouthpieces.|
Just a pair of wings.
Fly, Mosquito, Tipula, Tabano
The SEA is realizing a complete Catalog of the Aragonese Entomofauna that has already been partially published, where 190 families have been inventoried with 3012 species.
A small list of species in Aragon would be the following:

The pasapues project is an extension of the Aragón project is like that, and tries to collect and relate all possible types of documentary information about Aragon: texts, books, articles, maps, illustrations, photographs, narrations, etc., and proceed to its publication and diffusion.
