Country: Colombia

Coordinate: 1° 17' N, 78° 15' W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: "municipality of Ricaurte, Department of Nariņo"
altitude 1400 to 1750 m
Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Protection: nature reserve
Substrate: ground surface
MAP: 4900.0
Habitat comments: native primary "cloud forest"; there is "an extremely dry season from June to August"
MAP given in text; CMT and WMT unclear because the nearest climate station (80370, Ipiales) has much lower MAP and is at a much higher altitude
Life forms: scarab beetles
Sites: 1
Site length: 350.000
Sampling methods: line transect, baited, pitfall traps
Sample size: 2284
Years: 1995
Days: 2
Nets or traps: 8
Net or trap nights: 16
Sampling comments: eight human dung-baited pitfall traps situated 50 m apart on a single transect and left out for 48 hours; sampling was carried out between January to June, but this apparently means that individual sampling events fell within this period and not that sampling was continuous throughout it
