Research presently being conducted on the insects of El Edén Reserve in Quintana Roo, Mexico has been focused on faunistic studies of some of the
better known taxonomic groups.
These groups include butterflies, hawk moths, ants, and specific groups
of parasitic Hymenoptera and anthonomine weevils.
Lists of identified species of these
groups are being prepared and illustrated field guides for the reserve
are proposed for butterflies and ants to aid future research projects.
The majority of collected material will be stored at the insect collections
at El Colegio de la Frontera Sur in Chetumal, Quintana Roo, and San Cristóbal
de las Casas, Chiapas.
