revision of the genus Hyboptera Chaudoir, 1872:161
Hello all,
I am just about finished with a revision of this genus of arboreal carabids. There are 10 described species and 3-4 more yet to be named. They range from southern Texas to Bolivia. Larvae are known, but yet to be described. They are predators and eat Psochoptera and Embioptera under the silk webbing these critters weave on tree trunks. More to come >>>

 
Awesome!
will be waiting!
