Monday Night Mystery: An antennal challenge in many segments

Antennae

 

The above image shows the antennae of ten different insects. Your challenge is to identify the taxonomic order to which each belongs.

One point will be awarded for the first correct answer to each antenna, for a maximum total of 10, and the cumulative points winner for the month of January will win their choice of:

1) A guest post here on Myrmecos
2) Any 8×10 print from my insect photography galleries
3) A myrmecos t-shirt

Good luck!
