Chrysina beetles in Panama and Costa Rica

Post by Luehdorf »

I am preparing a longer trip to the cloud forests of Chiriqui at the border to Costa Rica.
I only know that Chrysina beetles come to light at night. What else should I know in order to be successful? When at night do they come? Any other advice?

Ron Cave should be able to provide a wealth of information on collecting Chrysina. He has collected them in Honduras and other nearby countries. National Geographic magazine featured an article about his Honduras trip. Not sure which issue. here is a link with his contact info, but I don't know if it is up to date.
