    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The prestigious magazine National Geographic this week released a comprehensive report on the investigation of wasps held in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

    U.S., Costa Rican and Canadian researcher, led by Daniel Jansen and his wife Winnie Hallwachs, found 186 new species of wasps, Apanteles Microgastrinae, in the Guanacaste Conservation Area (ACG).

    According to research, these wasps which measure between 1-5 mm, are parasitic to butterfly and moth cocoons (in the area there are over 10,000 species, according to research).

    The most striking fact is that the ACG concentrates 20% of the world’s population of these wasps.

    Alejandro Masis, director of ACG, said the publication of National Geographic gives more reverb to their research, and the work done in Costa Rica for conservation and ecological studies, which he described as “pioneering”.

    “It is an ongoing work and there will be more posts as we proceed with the inventory of the biodiversity of the area. We’ll have more surprises for you,” said the official.
