Notes to answerer
Asker: Funny, but WML supplied the right answer without even knowing it. The link he provided for a museum had a text with the term ARTHROPOD, which seems perfect to me.

Asker: The NATURAL HISTORY museum has this in its text: "explore all things arthropod in our Creepy Crawlies gallery". Considering this, your objection seems specious. Thanks, though.
