Field notes from Isla Colon:


Of the three species of Enyo that I have found so far on Isla Colon, E. gorgon is the least common. It comes to lights in the summer months.


Note the "inflated" patch along the costa -- not all individuals pictured online have this feature, but so far all of those from Isla Colon do.


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