introduction

 The International Association for Neuropterology resolved at its founding meeting in Cairo in May 1994 'to provide a forum for communication between persons interested in the study of Neuropteroidea'.

 This, the official web site of the International Association for Neuropterology (IAN), has been conceived in order to fulfill that resolution. In the main, this is a web site for specialists, but we welcome and encourage visitors.

 Neuroptera.com is a portal, linking and supporting the study of insects in the Neuropterida group (i.e. Megaloptera, Raphidioptera & Neuroptera). The bulk of research in this group is carried out on Neuroptera.

 Neuropterida are net-winged insects, represented by our logo (a member of the family Nemopteridae) and other insects in our gallery. Many are important predators, such as Green-lacewings and Ant-lions, the most familiar members of the Neuroptera to non-specialists.

Constitution and Bye-Laws of the IAN

 The International Association of Neuropterology was founded in Cairo on 5 May 1994.

Article 2. - Approval of membership of the Association shall be vested in the Board.
Article 3. - The Association shall arrange a Symposium every three years, and this shall also include a meeting of the General Assembly of the International Association for Neuropterology. Only members in good standing will be eligible to vote at the General Assembly.

NeuroWeb

 "Neuroweb is an information nexus for the neuropterologist and can be used by anybody with access to the internet ... Neuroweb was initiated by John Oswald in early 1996, and Peter McEwen joined the project shortly thereafter . This ambitious project aims to bring together all Neuroptera-related information on the internet and as such includes the following resources:" (McEwen & Oswald, 1998)

Neuropterists' Directory: Individuals

 The goal of the Neuropterists' Directory project is to compile an accurate and up-to-date listing of "directory information" about individuals and companies interested in neuropterid insects (orders Neuroptera, Megaloptera and Raphidioptera).

 The directory is a joint project, founded by John D. Oswald (U.S.A.) and Peter McEwen (U.K.). John D. Oswald is principally responsible for the solicitation and maintenance of data on individual neuropterists, and personnel associated with these entities.

Neuropterists' Directory: Companies

 The goal of the Neuropterists' Directory project is to compile an accurate and up-to-date listing of "directory information" about individuals and companies interested in neuropterid insects (orders Neuroptera, Megaloptera and Raphidioptera).

 The directory is a joint project, founded by John D. Oswald (U.S.A.) and Peter McEwen (U.K.). Wieland Röhricht (Germany) is now principally responsible for the solicitation and maintenance of data on commercial entities offering neuropterid-related products and services, and personnel associated with these entities.

 The information contained in the directory is the most recent information known to us. We cannot, and do not, guarantee that this information is either 100% accurate or current. If you use and find this directory helpful, please help us maintain it by periodically checking to see that your information is current and by contributing any information about communications numbers and addresses known to you that are lacking in the directory.
