Field notes from Isla Colon:

 

 

This individual came to a mercury vapor lamp set up on a hill in a pasture close to the edge of the rainforest. It's the only one I have seen on Isla Colon.

C. falcifera is widespread and common throughout Central America, and it's interesting that it's so scarce on Isla Colon.

 

There's also the question of identification -- I determined this to be C. falcifera, but C. parce is very similar. More records might help determine which species this is.

To help with identification, email me at identification@panamainsects.org. Please include specimen locator number.
