- Manuscript Preparation Guidelines and the appropriate "Template" have been consulted to help find and correct any potential problems prior to submission.
- Organization. The organization of the manuscript follows the recommended outline, including the section headings/titles.

- Membership in FES. I am a member in good standing with Florida Entomological Society, or one of the coauthors of this manuscript is a current member, and has a membership ID number, or I am willing to pay the additional page charges incurred by nonmembers.

- Page Charges Charges per printed page are US$125 for members and US$175 for non-members, plus a $10 per page charge for posting XML in BioOne (plus sales tax for Florida residents); this fee includes unrestricted open access. Additional costs for color display of figures apply. Typical costs of an average, 5-page article would be $675 for members and $925 for nonmembers.
- Financial obligations. Page charges will be paid by me or by another author, as shown on the cover page. Failure to pay publication charges in a timely manner will result in refusal of Florida Entomologist to consider any future manuscripts from the authors. Fees will not be waived or lowered for any circumstance.
- The contact author assures that all co-authors have seen this version of the manuscript and agree that the manuscript is ready for review. Be sure to list all authors and their correct email addresses on this submission form. Failure to do so will delay processing of your manuscript until the information has been provided.

I am willing to follow suggestions of my Co-Editor or Associate Editors to resolve any problems to correct my manuscript to journal standards.
