Abstract

Lists of insect species are useful for insect biologists and students in several fields, including taxonomy, behavioral ecology, conservation, and biological control, and they are useful to the teacher of classical entomology for the insight and drama they can provide to the history and biography of our science. Such lists can be viewed as cooperative projects that have combined the efforts and enthusiasms of naturalist/taxonomists along a time line, and as they evolve they can become ever better guides to observation and identification, and to new and interesting biotaxonomic problems. The list of NA fireflies recorded here gives the number and continental location of working species now recognized after long study of this taxon at the bench, in the library, and afield by many naturalists and taxonomists across more than two centuries, and makes status changes in a few species. /// Las listas de especies de insectos son útiles para los biólogos y estudiantes de insectos en varios campos, incluyendo la taxonomía, la ecologia de comportamiento, la conservación, y el control biológico, y son útiles para los maestros de entomologia clásica para la comprensión y el drama ellas que pueden proveer a la historia y la biografía de nuestra ciencia. Tales listas pueden ser vistas como proyectos cooperativos que han combinados los esfuerzos y el entusiasmo de los naturalistas/taxónomos por toda una linea de tiempo, y mientras que ellos sean se desarrollados pueden convertirse en mejores guias para la observación e identificación y para los problemas nuevos e interesantes biotaxonómicos. La lista de luciérnagas de NA registrada aqui dá el número y la ubicación continental de especies ahora reconocidas después de un largo estudio de este taxón en el laboratorio, en la biblioteca, y en el campo por muchas naturalistas y taxónomos a travéz de más de dos siglos, y hace cambios en el estatus en algunas especies.
