All live photos were taken by Stephen Marshall with the exception of the Hymenarcys nervosa photo, which is by Scott Justis ( contributor), and Amaurochrous cinctipes,  which is by Tom Murray ( contributor). All specimen photos were taken by Man-San Ma and Steven Paiero, with the exceptions of Amaurochrous brevitylus taken by Michael Schwartz (Canadian National Collection of Insects, Ottawa, ON) and Mcphersonarcys aequalis taken by Robert W. Sites (Enns Entomology Museum, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO); the latter photo was reproduced from the 2012 cover of The Great Lakes Entomologist 45 ( 3 & 4) with permission of Therese M. Poland (editor).  The photo of the wing venation associated with the habitus photo of M. aequalis also was taken by R. W. Sites. The authors thank these individuals for allowing us to use their images.
We are particularly grateful to Tom J. Henry (Systematic Entomology Laboratory, USDA-ARS, c/o National Museum of Natural History, Washington, DC) and David A. Rider (Department of Entomology, North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND) who provided thorough and insightful reviews of earlier versions of the manuscript.
Man-San Ma was partially supported through the OMAFRA Undergraduate Summer Experiential Learning program, with OMAFRA supervisors Hannah Fraser, Jennifer Llewellyn, Joanne Handley and Denise Beaton.

We thank the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and the Nature Conservancy of Canada for their support of the study of Ontario’s insect diversity.
