Diversity & Classifications of Organisms within the Domain Eukarya
• Answer questions about the Domain Eukarya using information in the Lab Manual.
• You will visit the exhibits on the second floor of the S building to view some of the many diverse forms of animal life.

• Notice the incredible morphological variations among the animal species.
• Complete Part C of the Lab Report.
• Using the dichotomous key provided below and in the Lab Report, determine the scientific name (be sure to write them correctly) for each butterfly in the lab report. Fill in Table 6.1 in your Lab Report with the scientific name of each butterfly.
• After identifying the scientific name, research and find out the common name. Fill in the Common name column in Table 6.1. Do you think you have you seen any of these butterflies before? State yes or no in the "Have you seen this butterfly" column in Table 6.1.
How to use the Dichotomous key.
• ALWAYS start with question 1, from there you are told to move to another question.
• In this key, if the hind wing edge is smooth you go to question 2. If the hind wing edge is wavy you jump to question 6.
• If you try to take shortcuts you will get the incorrect answer.
• If you have used the dichotomous key correctly than all 6 scientific names in the key will be used only once.
• Use the slides below for help with butterfly anatomy.
• Use dichotomous Key below and the images of the butterflies to identify them and answer questions in Part C of Lab 6 Lab Report.
