I had to name a bug with the first letter Q.

Can anybody think of one?

It does not count. It is a form of a bee, but not a bug that starts with name Q!!

This question was on my U.S. citizenship exam. The answer is: "Quadrate fanwinged katydid". I know, this sounds like a joke, but etimologists think in mysterious ways: http://www.ento.csiro.au/aicn/name_s/b_3694.htm

Yes, here in the USA we routinely test prospective citizens on their knowledge of Australian arthropods. We've got to have standards, after all.

from the wiki:

Bug:
Biology
Formally, an insect of the order Hemiptera, also known as the "true bugs". (Outdated taxonomies sometimes use the name Heteroptera.)
More colloquially, any arthropod (usually excepting crustaceans); includes insects, but also non-insects such as spiders and centipedes.


of course, you did say "pedantic"...

There are at least two answers that fit the more formal definition. The quadrate fanwinged katydid is not among them. Hint: Marc actually had five letters right.

I am running out of time on this. I don't see 'Queen' as a valid answer though.

May be qbeen...

Wouldn't it be a shame to die from some nasty desease and to never really find out what kind of insect's name start with a "Q"?

You got to hit that sweet spot between having too many bugs and not enough bugs. If you have too many bugs then you just spend all your time fixing them (and fixing the fixes), and hence no development - and who wants to do that. If you don't have any bugs (or features) then you cannot generate any 'extra money' money in support costs. Oh I know - as programmers we should be looking at test driven development and improve the quality of our code [like the Japanese manufacturing industry] - but I'm sure that's how successful businesses look at it - take Mirc$oft.

How about: stenotusBinotatus ?
