Biology

Jack Longino: This species is known from males only. During an 18-month program of sampling using blacklight traps at La Selva, as part of the ALAS project, five males were obtained in three different samples. The males occurred during December and January. A male occurred in a blacklight trap sample from the 500m site (El Ceibo) on the Barva transect. Ronald Vargas collected a male at a light at the 1100m site on the Barva transect.
