The Embioptera Species File (ESF) is a taxonomic database of the scientific names of the world's webspinners (Order Embioptera = Embiidina = Embiodea). The goal of ESF is to foster research and learning on webspinners, while increasing our understanding of the world's biodiversity. The ESF has information for approximately 400 valid species and 600 total names. Both extinct and extant species are included. Type specimen information is currently available on over half the species. Plans are under development for adding images, distributions and ecological information.

To see information contained in the database, use the links across the top of the page.  Click on Search to find a specific taxon or other kinds of information.  Clicking on Taxa will make the order Embioptera your current taxon unless you have previously moved to a different taxon in this session.

This website and database use Species File Software.  Information about the design and use of SFS may be found on a separate website.
