Without a doubt the place to start for general Thailand bugs is Thaibugs at Farangs Gone Wild - the site really has amassed a great collection and it is growing all the time.

Additionally the other great site has just undergone a redesign and is very easy to navigate now - some fantastic detailed information down to species level, when you have your ID

A few further online resources where there are forums available to have your insects identified:

Longhorn Beetles (Cerambycoidea) - . ID forum available. Franceso is always very helpful.
Praying Mantids - . ID forum available.

Stick/Leaf Insects (Phasmids) - URL BROKEN. ID forum available.
Flies (Diptera) - ID forum available.
Spiders and Scorpions (Arachnids) and Centipedes/Milipedes (Myriapods) - ID forums available. Site is more for Tarantula hobbyists, but they can sometimes help.

I also have contacts for Tiger Beetles and Tesseratomidae (Hemiptera), but they are only contactable by email. They are busy professionals in their fields so I try to limit my id requests to twice a year. I would always be happy to add any photo to my list for my occasional mails to them.

Does anyone have contacts for Flatidae, Orthoptera and Hymenoptera?
