Abstract Lophomyra Schaus, 1911 (Noctuidae) is the smaller of two noctuid genera originally described by Schaus that include species recently associated with ferns (Pteridophyta), in this case Polypodiaceae, as larval food plants. Following an examination of type material and reared specimens accompanied by DNA barcode data, Lophomyra is revised to include L.tacita Schaus, 1911, L.santista (Jones, 1914), and L.commixta (Schaus, 1914), comb. n., the last of which is transferred from Chytonidia… 
A review of Leucosigma Druce, 1908: a newly discovered case of fern-feeding and descriptions of three new species (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae)
TLDR
Chytonidia Schaus, 1914, is one of two noctuine genera originally described by Schaus that includes species recently found to feed on fern foliage (Pteridophyta) as larvae that is examined by examining museum specimens and reared specimens accompanied by DNA barcode data.
Aprica: a new genus and life history for the pteridivore Xanthiapatula Druce, 1898 (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae)
TLDR
This species has no obvious close relatives either among the core noctuid pteridivore genera currently recognized in the Eriopinae (e.g., Callopistria Hübner, [1821]), nor among genera more recently discovered to be fern-feeders but which remain incertae sedis with respect to subfamily.
A Novel Origin of Pteridivory among the New World Noctuoidea: Fern-Feeding “Litter Moths” (Erebidae: Herminiinae)
Abstract. Surveys of the caterpillars of Area Conservacion de Guanacaste (ACG), northwestern Costa Rica, documented an array of litter moths (Erebidae: Herminiinae) feeding on ferns in at least 17

Hiding Behind Gaudy Looks, a New Central American Species of Phareas (Hesperiidae: Eudaminae)
TLDR
A new species of Phareas is described from Costa Rica and Panama by wing patterns, which were quantified and revealed two clusters with a profound hiatus between them, and male secondary sexual characters on hindwing; female genitalia, mostly in the depth of distal notch on lamella postvaginalis.
Joining Inventory by Parataxonomists with DNA Barcoding of a Large Complex Tropical Conserved Wildland in Northwestern Costa Rica
TLDR
The career parataxonomists, despite their lack of formal higher education, have proven very capable of absorbing and working around the additional complexity and requirements for accuracy and detail that are generated by adding barcoding to the field base of the ACG inventory.
DNA barcoding the Lepidoptera inventory of a large complex tropical conserved wildland, Area de Conservacion Guanacaste, northwestern Costa Rica.
TLDR
This essay touches on some of the details of the mechanics of actually using DNA barcoding in an inventory, and sees that DNA Barcoding, firmly married to centuries-old morphology, ecology, microgeography, and behavior-based ways of taxonomizing the wild world, has made possible what was impossible before 2004.
Biochemical and evolutionary aspects of arthropod predation on ferns
TLDR
It is found that in a measured locality, ferns were no less attacked than the angiospermous flora in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, suggesting possible coevolution of arthropods and f Ferns both before and after the radiation of angiosperms.
Nuclear genomes distinguish cryptic species suggested by their DNA barcodes and ecology
TLDR
It is shown that a widespread neotropical skipper butterfly known as Udranomia kikkawai (Weeks) comprises three different species in Costa Rica, and their complete nuclear genomes totaling 15 million aligned positions reveal significant differences consistent with their 0.00065-Mbp mitochondrial barcodes and their ecological diversification.
Volatile Emission in Bracken Fern Is Induced by Jasmonates but Not by Spodoptera littoralis or Strongylogaster multifasciata Herbivory
TLDR
Results indicate that similar to higher plants, terpenoid VOCs are produced via these pathways in bracken fern and that these pathways are JA-responsive, and the very low amounts of terpenoids released after herbivory or mechanical damage are in stark contrast to what is known from higher plants.
An Evolutionary and Ecological Perspective of the Insect Fauna of Ferns
TLDR
Differences in morphological complexity between angiosperms and ferns probably accounts for a portion of the underutilization of f Ferns, but chemical defense mechanisms and ecological characteristics such as population size or phenology may be of importance.
