As long as you don't count rhesus factors and all that other minute stuff.

The rhesus factor and the ABO factors are two different measurements. Someone with A+ blood and someone with A- blood have the same ABO blood types, but differing rhesus blood types. As far as ABO is concerned, AB is the most rare type. I am not sure which is more rare, rhesus positive, or rhesus negative.

Deffinetly rhesus factor negative is more rare, biostudent. Actually, 85% of humans are rhesus positive, only 15% are rhesus negative. Therefore, per total, AB negativ is the rares blood type(actually if i remember properly the rarest is AB4 negative, only 0.001% of humans or something like that have it. Not sure about this though.)

flys, lighting bugs, bee's, ants, and termites are all insect but DIFFERENT insects.

Um, actually yes..they are all insects but if you want to classified it specifically, you must differ them from: wing shape, legs and mouth type.
