Our member Valentina Filippini recently completed his PhD on the taxonomy of Anomalini beetles in Costa Rica. This led her to describe more than 50 new species in 7 articles published in international journals. She has also recently published the cehcklist of Anomalini species of Costa Rica, which includes a dichotomous key for identification of all species in the country (120 species). “The Anomalini are a very diverse and abundant group, but little studied because of the difficulty to identify the species. This series of works is a starting point for the biodiversity of the group to be studied in other neotropical countries “says Valentina.
