About the ring
go to the Beetle Ring's home page
This web ring is for sites which are about the insect order Coleoptera (beetles).  Your site can contain information about any kind of beetle from scarabaeids to cerambycids, but it needs to be a site with actual natural history information.  Sites which advocate the conservation and captive breeding of beetles are especially welcome.  Are you a beetle enthusiast and/or hobbyist with a site about beetles?  If so, please come join us!
