Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


The New World tribe Aconophorini includes the genera Aconophora, Calloconophora, and Guayaquila, as well as the genus Acanthicoides, which is of uncertain position because its type species is based on a presently unidentifiable nymphal specimen. Members of the tribe are gregarious and subsocial, with females guarding their egg-masses and usually remaining with their offspring throughout nymphal development. They occur from sea level to elevations of more than 3000 m, in habitats ranging from tropical forests to dessert.
