Abstract : Material was collected and reared by cooperators in Panama, Canal Zone, Grenada, St Vincent, Trinidad and Jamaica. Standardized collecting and storage equipment (including plastics) and field record forms for bionomics were developed. About 850 collections were processed and about 10,000 slides and 20,000 adults were prepared in Los Angeles. A looseleaf catalog of all nominal species reported from Middle America was begun. Preliminary identifications were made for 400 collections and some 200 species were recognized. Preliminary drawings of the complete larval and/or pupal chaetotaxy of 25 species were prepared. Arrangements were made for quick economical photo-offset publication of review and descriptive papers with emphasis on illustrations. (Author)
