A new species of the family Sturmiidae (Collembola: Symphypleona) from Panama
TLDR
The new species lacks a pseudonychium on the ungues, has a smaller mucro than the other species in the genus, and females have long anal appendices. Expand
Checklist of tortoise beetles (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae) from Colombia with new data and description of a new species
TLDR
A new tortoise beetle species, Cyrtonota abrili, is described from the Antioquia and Caldas departments in Colombia, providing new faunistic data for 87 species, including 16 new additions to the country’s fauna. Expand
A checklist of the Scarabaeoidea (Coleoptera) of Panama
TLDR
The 541 species of Scarabaeoidea known to occur in Panama are listed and all taxa are accompanied by an abbreviated reference to the original literature citation wherein they were described. Expand
A Synopsis of Neotropical Perlidae (Plecoptera)
The Neotropical perlid fauna currently includes about 280 species placed in ten genera. Anacroneuria, the dominant and most diverse genus throughout much of the Neotropics, is largely replaced inExpand
Origins of parental care in chrysomelid beetles
An insect is considered’ subsocial’ if one or both parents extend care to offspring beyond the egg stage (Michener, 1969; Wilson, 1971, p. 4). Advanced parental care or subsociality has evolvedExpand
RECORDS OF MESOAMERICAN ANACRONEURIA (PLECOPTERA: PERLIDAE), WITH DESCRIPTIONS OF FOUR NEW SPECIES
Three new species, Anacroneuria guanacaste, A. morsei and A. tempisquito are described based on Costa Rican specimens and an additional new species, A. totumas is described from Panamanian specimens.Expand
A new species of Denisiella (Collembola: Sminthurididae) from Panama and new records for D. sexpinnata (Denis, 1938)
Denisiella diomedesi sp. nov. from Panama is described and illustrated based on male specimens. It is close to D. maesorum from Nicaragua, but possesses a nasal organ. New localities for D.Expand
Hispines (Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae) of La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica
TLDR
Survey work from 1992–2001 identified 139 species of hispines at the lowland part of La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica, with the tribe Cephaloleiini was the most speciose followed by the Chalepini with 55 species. Expand
Four new species of Oidardis Hermann, 1912 (Diptera, Asilidae, Laphriinae, Atomosiini) from two major faunistic surveys in the Atlantic Rainforest
TLDR
Four new species of robber-flies of the genus Oidard is described, including illustrations and details on male hypopygia and female genitalia, from the Brazilian Atlantic Forests region, including O. triangularis (Hermann), 1912. Expand
Notes on some species of the genus Protosticta from Vietnam (Odonata, Platystictidae)
Based on a study of various recent collections of Protosticta Selys from Vietnam, the dragonfly species P. grandis Asahina and P. khaosoidaoensis Asahina (sensu stricto) are reported from Vietnam forExpand

Some records of Odonata collected in Tropical Africa
The following notes and descriptionptions are concerned with various collections of dragonflies submitted in recent years to the National Museum, Bulawayo, by collectors in tropical Africa. Of allExpand
Intraspecific interference among larvae in a semivoltine dragonfly population
TLDR
Three field experiments and a statistical power analysis show how colonization and interference interact to determine the local density of small larvae, and why such interference effects are difficult to detect experimentally in the field. Expand
Density-dependent population dynamics in larvae of the dragonfly Pachydiplax longipennis: a field experiment
TLDR
There was a strong negative effect of density on the mean growth rate of survivors, which included both emerging tenerals and individuals overwintering in the larval stage, and there were no significant food-by-density interactions, indicating that food and density acted independently on larval population dynamics. Expand
Reproductive isolation in Damselflies
TLDR
It is hypothesized that it will be found to be important in all odonates in which male appendages differ substantially between species while female coloration does not, and it is concluded that "mechanical isolation plays a very minor role as an isolating mechanism in most groups of animals". Expand
Consequences of Larval Ecology for Territoriality and Reproductive Success of a Neotropical Damselfly
TLDR
Results from a field experiment suggest that both mate acquisition and procurement of superior larval habitats have been selective pressures in the evolution of male territory choice. Expand
Mating Behaviour and its Relationship to Territoriality in Platycypha Caligata (Selys) (Odonata: Chlorocyphidae)
TLDR
The adaptation of Platycypha caligata to oviposition on driftwood and treeroots (the discreet, scarce, defendable sites invoked as the first step in this theory) may have been associated with their occupation of mountain streams which have no emergent vegetation. Expand
Seasonal Variation in the Intensity of Competition and Predation Among Dragonfly Larvae
TLDR
Evidence is provided that competition and predation will simultaneously affect coexistence between these two dragonfly species, and that predation early in larval development should ameliorate the intensity of subsequent competitive interactions at a time when resources are most likely to be limiting. Expand
Lifetime mating success in the damselfly Coenagrion puella
TLDR
Evidence is provided to support the view that variance in male reproductive success is neither evidence for sexual selection, nor a measure of its intensity, and is shown to have a major effect on mating success. Expand
