Mouth morphology types include chewing, sucking, piercing-sucking, biting-sucking, and biting-chewing. Head morphology types include hypognathus, prognathus, and opistrorincus types. Antenna morphology types include filiform, clavate, pectinate, aristale, and geniculate types. Wing morphology types include membrane, elytra, halter, and tegmina types. The morphological types of insect violations include cursorial, saltatorial, raptatorial, and natatorial types. 81% of pests, 9% of saprophagus and 9% of pollinators get the role of insects.
