A List of Current Valid Blow Fly Names (Diptera: Calliphoridae) in the Americas South of Mexico with Key to the Brazilian Species
This paper lists all species of Calliphoridae found in the Americas south of Mexico, based on reports in the literature between the years 1960 and 2012, and an identification key for the species that occur in Brazil is presented. Expand
Seasonal fluctuation in the population of Harmonia axyridis (Pallas, 1773) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) and co-occurrence with other Coccinellids in the Federal District of Brazil
A joaninha asiatica, Harmonia axyridis (Pallas, 1773), foi primeiramente registrada no Brasil em 2002 no Estado do Parana, sendo posteriormente registrada nos estados de Sao Paulo e Minas Gerais.Expand
Diversity and Spatial Distribution of Predacious Dolichopodidae (Insecta: Diptera) on Organic Vegetable Fields and Adjacent Habitats in Brazil
The importance of less disturbed habitats over time in the agricultural landscape, such as agroforestry and native vegetation, as complementary habitats for the maintenance and conservation of dolichopodid species in particular is verified, a scenario to be tested for other insect groups. Expand
Comparative morphology of the spermathecae of some species of Chrysomya Robineau-Desvoidy and Cochliomyia Townsend (Diptera, Calliphoridae)
Analysis of the spermathecae of some species of Chrysomya Robineau-Desvoidy and Cochliomyia Townsend will allow a better understanding of this group as well as provide taxonomic characters for future phylogenetic studies. Expand
The role of integrating agroforestry and vegetable planting in structuring communities of herbivorous insects and their natural enemies in the Neotropical region
Abstract The integration of agroforestry plots with ephemeral crops such as vegetables on the farm scale can probably serve as a refuge and source of beneficial insects. Therefore, agroforestryExpand
Dynamics of predatory and herbivorous insects at the farm scale: the role of cropped and noncropped habitats
This work investigated how different habitat types can affect the conservation and spatial dynamics of predatory and herbivore insects in organic vegetable crops in Brazil and found a higher species richness of predators and Herbivores in noncropped habitats. Expand

Immature Stages and Ecological Characteristics of Idalus lineosus Walker (Erebidae: Arctiinae)
The caterpillars are solitary, exhibit morphological variation between instars, and present varied color patterns in the last larval instar in the cerrado sensu stricto reliefs of two soil types (oxysoil and rocky soil). Expand
