RAMOS SANZ, Mar; LANFRANCO LEVERTON, Dolly; HOLMQVIST ALVAREZ, Carolina  and  RODRIGUEZ OLMO, Antonio. Species richness and diversity patterns in a pompilid assemblage (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae) captured with Malaïse trap of evergreen Valdivian temperate forest. Gayana (Concepc.) [online]. 2012, vol.76, n.1, pp.62-66. ISSN 0717-6538.

Temperate forests of south Chile and Argentina treasure high levels of diversity and endemicity. However, there are few studies that quantify diversity patterns of higher species richness taxa like insects in these ecosystems., one of the less studied groups in spite of their high diversity are insect parasitoids. In this study we analyzed richness and diversity patterns of one group of parasitoids with higher endemicity pompilids (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae). We sampled four evergreen coastal forest habitats using Malaïse traps in Valdivia province along 21 dates and we obtained a total of 9 pompilid species within 3 genera. Despite of the low number of species collected, all species collected are endemics of Central Chilean and Subantarctic Subregions.
