Succession pattern of carrion-feeding insects in Paramo, Colombia.
The Diversity of Flower Flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) in Colombia and Their Neotropical Distribution
TLDR
The altitudinal range and the distribution of the flower fly genera in Colombia are presented, and a preliminary comparison of the fauna of Colombia with that of other Neotropical countries is given.
Successional behavior and occurrence matrix of carrion-associated arthropods in the urban area of Medellín, Colombia.
TLDR
The results showed that both the aforementioned species as well as the physical characteristics of the carcass determined the indicator species of the postmortem interval in urban areas of the city of Medellín, Colombia.
FAMILY CERATOPOGONIDAE.
Two hundred and thirty five species of Ceratopogonids arranged in 28 genera are listed for Colombia, mostly Culicoides (112 species) and Forcipomyia (50 species). For each listed species, information
Rearing five species of Diptera (Calliphoridae) of forensic importance in Colombia in semicontrolled field conditions
TLDR
Overall, high temperatures speeded up the development of the species reared at two different sites, whereas low temperatures for C. nigribasis, lengthened the total development time.
Description of Pintomyia limafalcaoae and Pintomyia antioquiensis, two new species of phlebotomine sand fly (Diptera, Psychodidae) from the Colombian Andes.
TLDR
Two new species of phlebotomine sand fly from Colombian Andes are described, belonging to the subgenus Pifanomyia of the genus Pintomyia, and identification keys presented for the two new species.
The first phylogenetic study of Mesembrinellidae (Diptera: Oestroidea) based on molecular data: clades and congruence with morphological characters
TLDR
Re‐examination of the female reproductive tract of M. patriciae revealed a Laneela‐type spermatheca, which corroborates the position of the species recovered in the molecular phylogenetic analyses, and corroborate the Mesembrinellidae as a monophyletic lineage inside Oestroidea.
