Inverts from Costa Rica I: Metamasius annulatus (Champion)
i can't tell you a great deal about it, other than other species in the genus are considered to be pests.
Thanks to Chris Lyal for the identification.
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
