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 Please include specimen locator number.
