Abstract

ARTEAGA-BLANCO, Luis Andrés; DE LA PARRA-GUERRA, Ana Cristina  and  MARTINEZ-HERNANDEZ, Neis José. TAXONOMIC DESCRIPTIONS OF MANTIS (MANTODEA) FROM DEPARTMENT OF ATLÁNTICO, COLOMBIA AND COMMENTS ON THEIR DISTRIBUTION. Bol. Cient. Mus. Hist. Nat. Univ. Caldas [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.1, pp.211-236. ISSN 0123-3068.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/bccm.2016.20.1.16.

Taxonomic revision of 98 mantids specimens stored in the biological collections (UARC-135) from Atlántico University was performed in order to contribute to the knowledge of mantodea order present in Colombia. The species identification was based on a thorough analysis of morphological characters and male genitalia of some specimens. We present for the first time taxonomic descriptions and distribution notes of 15 mantids species in dry tropical forest (Dt-F) ecosystem from Atlántico department, thus expanding knowledge of the Mantodea diversity in the Caribbean region.

Keywords : Dry tropical forest; Atlántico department; Caribbean region of Colombia; taxonomic descriptions; male genitalia.
