Common Ajedrezada (Pyrgus orcus)

  • Common Checkered
  • Hesperiidae family
  • Lepidoptera order
  • Insecta class
Between the lepid³pteros we found to the butterflies (diurnal) and the moths (nocturnal). They are nectar­voras species (they consume nectar). From the point of view of the pollination, between the butterflies, the Families Hesperiidae and Papilionidae are important.

Bumblebee (Xylocopa frontalis)

  • Bees joiners or Bumblebees carpenters
  • Carpenter Bee

The S­rfidos (Syrphidae Family) are called €œflies of the flowers€. They are dipterous that has the capacity to adopt the appearance of bees or wasps. 180 sorts and some exist 6000 species, of which 180 are present in Argentina. They are good pollenizers, fulfilling an important role in the pollination. Their larvae are predatory of other insects.

Vaquita Of San Antonio (speciosa Diabrotica)

  • Chrysomelidae family
