Field notes from Isla Colon:


E. phorbus is common on Isla Colon. I have found it in all habitats except for the rainforest interior, and I wouldn't be surprised if it turned up there also. Both males and females come to blacklight and mercury vapor, though males are more commonly found at lights. Flies in the early evening. More common in the summer months.
