Two new species of Notodontidae from the lowland dry forests of the Area de Conservacion Guanacaste, northwestern Costa Rica are described: Hapigiodes sigifredomarini n. sp . and Euhapigiodes hallwachsae n. sp. in Euhapigiodes, n. gen. The larvae of both feed on Lonchocarpus (Fabaceae). Pseudhapigia misericordia Dyar is moved to Hapigiodes as a new combination. Hapigiodes and Euhapigiodes are relatives of Hapigia, and would previously have been placed in the tribe Hemiceratini of Forbes, but… 
Reading the Complex Skipper Butterfly Fauna of One Tropical Place
TLDR
This work summarizes the process and results for a large set of the species of two speciose subfamilies of ACG skipper butterflies (Hesperiidae) and emphasizes the effectiveness of barcoding these species (which are often difficult and time-consuming to identify).
Integration of DNA barcoding into an ongoing inventory of complex tropical biodiversity
TLDR
Adding DNA barcoding to the inventory of the caterpillars, their food plants and parasitoids in northwestern Costa Rica has substantially improved the quality and depth of the inventory, and greatly multiplied the number of situations requiring further taxonomic work for resolution.
On the evolution and function of caltrop cornuti in Lepidoptera – potentially damaging male genital structures transferred to females during copulation
TLDR
Deciduous, star-shaped spines named “caltrop cornuti” (CC) are known in about 400 species of Lepidoptera and their function is unknown; their deciduous design, production cost and potential risk of damage resulting from their acute spines suggest that CC evolved by natural and/or sexual selection.
Sexual Selection Within the Female Genitalia in Lepidoptera
TLDR
This chapter explores the selective pressures responsible for the evolution of genital morphology in the Lepidoptera, emphasizing the possible role of post-copulatory intersexual selection (PCIS) mechanisms (cryptic female choice and sexual conflict).
Setting up tropical biodiversity for conservation through non-damaging use: participation by parataxonomists
Summary 1. A parataxonomist is a resident, field-based, biodiversity inventory specialist who is largely on-the-job trained out of the rural work force and makes a career of providing specimens and
Cryptic Female Choice in Arthropods
TLDR
Assessing what is known and as yet unknown about the interface between CFC and Sfps and suggesting avenues for further research in this fascinating area of Diptera is concluded.
