Species list: includes species classification and center of distribution
Size and dispersal: Body Size, Hind wing length, Body mass of larvae and adults, Relative dispersal activity
Food and habitat: Trophic level, Hunting abilities, Habitat preference
Reproduction: Hibernation, Activity Time, Reproduction time
