MARTINEZ-ALAVA, Javier O.  and  SERNA, Francisco. Managing insect collections. Micropezidae (Diptera: Nerioidea) of the Entomological Museum UNAB. Agron. colomb. [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.3, pp.339-347. ISSN 0120-9965.

UNAB consists of several collections that seek to represent the insects of agricultural and forestry significance from the various regions of Colombia, especially the mountainous zone. In order to contribute to knowledge on the Diptera diversity of Colombia found in agricultural ecosystems, the present study looked at the Micropezidae contained in this museum, along with the represented taxa, as well as its current curatorial status and geographic distribution in the country. Currently, the Taxonomic Central Collection houses 107 specimens from the Micropezidae family, which belong to the genera Cardiacephala, Grallipeza, Grallomyia, Mesoconius, Micropeza, Plocoscelus, Paragrallomyia, Poecilotylus, Ptilosphen, Scipopus, and Taeniaptera, representing distribution in 57 municipalities and 12 departments (provinces) of the Colombian Andean region.

Keywords : Andean region; Colombia; taxonomy; geographical distribution; agroecosystems; Insecta.
