In late August, Ricardo Fernandez and Dr. Phil Wittman went to Pucacaca for about one week.  Dr. Phil Wittman went to teach the ABOFOA

group about rope climbing.  When I asked William in an e-mail what was happening, he replied that they were up in trees to study the biology

of Platycerium andinun. In the meantime Dr. Phil Wittman found new species of frogs and insects along the trails of the Reserve Ojos de Agua.

William sent me MANY photos.


This page contains the insects, with the labels they had on them. (all the photos are by  Dr. Phil Wittman
