Naturalist J.B.S. Haldane once remarked that "the Creator, if He exists, has a special preference for beetles, and so we might be more likely to meet them than any other type of animal on a planet that would support life". Beetles, order Coleoptera, are among the most diverse of cosmopolitan creatures in the New York area as well.
