INSECTS OF PANAMA AND MESOAMERICA Selected Studies
TLDR
This research presents a novel scenario that combines the efforts of a large number of investigators to systematically study the behaviour of bees in the aftermath of a major infestation. Expand
THE AMBLYPYGID GENUS PHRYNUS IN THE AMERICA S (AMBLYPYGI, PHRYNIDAE )
TLDR
Three new species are described and one, P. damonidaensis, presents a character unique within the family Phrynidae : three tibial segments in le g IV instead of four. Expand
Revision of the amblypygid spiders of Cuba and their relationships with the Caribbean and continental American amblypygidfauna
TLDR
Of the three genera present in Cuba, Charinides is reported for the first time for the Caribbean and four new species are described, indicating a high degree of endemism. Expand
Molecular Ecological Insights into Neotropical Bird–Tick Interactions
TLDR
Given the discovery of broad interaction between Panamanian tick and avian biodiversity, future work on tick ecology and the dynamics of emerging tropical tick-borne pathogens should explicitly consider wild bird as hosts. Expand
Review of Scolia (Hymenoptera: Scoliidae) from Central America, including seasonal flight activity in Scolia guttata
A taxonomic revision of the genus Scolia Fabricius, 1775 (Hymenoptera: Scoliidae) from Central America is presented. Two species of Scolia are present in Central America: S. (Discolia) guttataExpand
Biology of a New Panamanian Bagworm Moth (Lepidoptera: Psychidae) with Predatory Larvae, and Eggs Individually Wrapped in Setal Cases
TLDR
The biology and morphology of all stages of a new species of Psychidae from Panama, Perisceptis carnivora Davis (Lepidoptera: Psychidae), are described, andotheses as to how these eggs are wrapped and how the cases may protect the eggs are proposed. Expand
Molecular insights into Neotropical bird-tick ecological associations and the role of birds in tick-borne disease ecology
TLDR
The data indicate that Panamanian birds are not parasitized regularly by the tick species responsible for most known tick-borne diseases, however, they are frequent hosts of other tick species known to carry a variety of rickettsial parasites of unknown pathogenicity. Expand
Dasymutilla Ashmead (Hymenoptera, Mutillidae) in Panama: new species, sex associations and seasonal flight activity
TLDR
A taxonomic revision of Panamanian species of the genus Dasymutilla Ashmead is presented and a key for the six species is given, all recognized from both sexes. Expand
Seasonal and annual variation in the abundance of Ephuta (Hymenoptera: Mutillidae) in Panama
TLDR
It is concluded that Ephuta display strong seasonal variation in abundance, with the peaks occurring during the end of the dry season and beginning of the rainy season, which correlate broadly with temperature and the abundance of their pompilid hosts. Expand
