For example, although large families such as Scarabaeidae and Muscidae cannot easily be assigned to FFG without further identification, many orders, such as adult Odonata, Neuroptera and Orthoptera, and superfamilies, such as parasitoid Ichneumonoidea and the piercing/sucking Pentatomoidea, share broad feeding styles.
On the whole order Orthoptera was dominant followed by Araneae, Hemiptera, Coleoptera, Lepidoptera, Hymenoptera, Odonata, Diptera and Thysanoptera, Neuroptera, Prostigmata each represented by single species except Mantodea with two species.
This Neuroptera insect, with its typical four part metamorphic life cycle, has a larval phase that is particularly affective against aphids.

The order Neuroptera has received recent interest, due to their promise as biological control agents and a tolerance for several modern insecticides (Canard 1998).
However, members of the orders Blattaria (cockroaches), [dagger] Protelytroptera, Hemiptera (bugs), and Neuroptera are to be described, and several representatives of the Odonatoptera and Orthoptera are yet undescribed.
