Introduction to the key
This key is intended to guide users to distinguish among species of white grubs common to the Northeastern United States. It uses a combination of body size and morphological features and is interactive, so as you make choices, the key eliminates unlikely species matches. If you're new at this, take a look at the "Getting Started" page.
