antlions17

.

The correct answers to Monday’s puzzle- at least, as best as one can infer from the published research on insect phylogeny- were the thrips (E), and the antlion (H). Note that my sketch was not a complete phylogeny of all the orders. Many, like Strepsiptera and Mecoptera, were omitted for brevity, so the challenge had more possible answers beyond the lettered ones I offered.

Five points each go to Ted McRae and to Miles, for being the first to pick the thrips and the antlion, respectively.
