I'm interested in knowing the number of non-marine arthropod species that
are documented to occur in each US state or Canadian province. Ideally this
would be based on a compiled list that could be cited (either a database or
publication), but even an approximation would be helpful.

I've heard, for example, that Washington has ~25,000 insect species alone.
While here in Alaska we have ~8,400 non-marine arthropod species total.
