The carabid species studied were Abaris basistriata Chaudoir, Calosoma granulatum Perty, Galerita brasiliensis Dejean, Odontocheila nodicornis (Dejean), Scarites sp.
Durante el estudio no se encontraron especamenes de Calosoma alternans granulatum Perty, 1830, una especie tradicionalmente conocida como consumidor de larvas de Lepidoptera en sistemas agricolas (Allen 1977) y que solia ser abundante en esta region (Pardo-Locarno & Puerta-Paz 1990).
Despues de analizar la morfologia de las estructuras clave y de comparar nuestros ejemplares con otros de diferentes colecciones, se considera que los especimenes colectados en la RNRM estan mas cercanos a la especie Calosoma fulgens Chaudoir, registrada desde Cali (Colombia) hasta el oriente de Panama en la Peninsula de Azuero (ERWIN, 1991), que las tres especies registradas para Colombia (MARTINEZ, 2005b).

1996)), ground beetles (Carabus coriaceus (Riecken & Raths 1996) and Calosoma affine (Wallin 1991)) have been tagged and tracked successfully with harmonic radar, a method similar to PIT tagging.
A ocorrencia de Calosoma granulatum Perty (Coleoptera: Carabidae) foi maior entre as especies predadoras desta ordem, o que permite inferir que ocorreram presas suficientes para o sucesso deste inseto que se alimenta de lagartas e pupas de Noctuidae como Anticarsia gemmatalis (Hubner) e de Plusiinae (BENTANCOURT & SCANTONI, 2001).
Speciation patterns of invertebrates have been, in contrast, much less studied, and only recently have genetic studies been conducted on Coleoptera such as the tenebrionid Stomium (Finston & Peck 1995), the chrysomelid Nesaecrepidia (Verdyck & Desender 1999), the carabid Calosoma (Desender & Verdyck 2000; Verdyck et al.
