English term or phrase: Ayuda en nombre de animales
Sé que estamos supuestos a no hacer varias preguntas, pero no encuentro el nombre de los siguientes animalillos y no se si deba hacer una consulta por cada uno de ellos:

"Red Flour Beetles, Confused Flour Beetles, Lesser Grain Borers, Merchant Grain Beetles, and Sawtooth Grain Beetles"

Habrá alguien que me pueda ayudar por favor.

Gracias
