Sampling comments: "Sampling was conducted within a half-hectare square grid (100 × 50 m)... using eight CDC miniature black-light (UV) traps... Traps were placed in two transects of 100 meters, separated 50 meters from each other (four traps per transect), with a distance of 30 meters between traps on the same transect to avoid competition between them; traps were placed at 60 cm from the ground... each site was sampled for two days each season"
