Project Data

This project is aimed to explore the diversity of selected groups of arthropods (Cerambycoidea, Formicidae, Opiliones, Araneae, Odonata and Mantodea) from the Caribbean region of Colombia, which are unexplored and important for conservation. To achieve this, a series of visits to different collections was performed by experts of each group. The results of this project will generate a base to posterior studies applied to the conservation of strategic ecosystems like the tropical dry forest.

Title Preliminary checklist and occurrences of arthropod´s selected groups (Cerambycoidea, Formicidae, Opiliones, Araneae, Odonata and Mantodea) from the Caribbean of Colombia.

Sampling Methods

Researchers with good taxonomic knowledge visited different entomological collections and revised the Cerambycidae collection, identifying to species level when necessary and listing the departments of the Caribbean region of Colombia where those species occur.

Study Extent The study was performed in different entomological collections across Colombia since October 2021, where samples of Cerambycidae representative from the Caribbean coast of Colombia were deposited.
Quality Control The taxonomic quality of the checklist is ensured by having experts confirming the identification of the species. The data quality is ensured with the revision performed by the BID Regional Project Support Team, where all critical errors are pointed and fixed.

Method step description:

  1. Each researcher visited entomological collections in Barranquilla and Bogotá. It was identified the samples of Cerambycidae from the Caribbean coast of Colombia. All available occurrence data was written in a Darwin Core template available in the GBIF website. When necessary, the researcher identified or confirmed the species. From the occurrence data, it was elaborated the checklist of species. The data was sent for quality control. All critical errors were fixed, all non-critical errors were discussed and incorporated when necessary. The data was published and available to posterior modifications.

Additional Metadata

Purpose This checklist has as main purpose to increase the current state of knowledge of the diversity of Cerambycidae in the Caribbean region where it is found protected areas, strategic ecosystems as tropical dry forest and landscapes with a high connectivity and ecological integrity. This information will be useful to further investigation on the conservation of those ecosystems. Also, with this checklist the information of Cerambycidae in biological collection, in national and regional level, will be available through GBIF, where this information can be consulted for taking actions to protect those important ecosystems. Lastly, with the generation of this checklist will strength the interinstitutional network between the revised collections.
Maintenance Description This checklist will be constantly updated when visits to new entomological collections is performed during the project timeline. After the project ends, the checklist will be updated with the species collected and deposited in the hosting institution (Universidad del Atlántico) in upcoming years.
