Insects of Cedar Creek
The Zorapterans (2 NA spp) are tiny (2mm) gregarious insects found under
bark, in decaying wood, and sawdust piles in the southern US. They
are likely detritivores, feeding on fungi. Only a single family (Zorotypidae)
with ca. 24 world species occurs in the Order, which was only discovered
in 1913. None in Minnesota or at CCESR.
