Tiputini Discothyrea

Next we have the diminutive and adorable Discothyrea, she of the disco ball-like antennae. Jeffrey Sosa-Calvo and John LaPolla are working on a world revision of Discothyrea and Jeffrey kindly identified my specimens into 4 species: Discothyrea denticulata, Discothyrea horni, Discothyrea JSC-001, and Discothyrea sexarticulata. With the exception of a single queen, every single specimen was collected with a Winkler.
